But what about securing the PUBLIC SPACES of our village, that’s our streets, parking areas and beaches, who does that? Well, in a perfect world, SAPS would be out there patrolling and pounding the beat, but in reality SAPS nationwide is hard pressed to cope. So that’s where KOSRA is focusing its attentions, our public spaces, our village. That’s not to say we can’t help in private spaces if incidents occur and we can be of use, but it’s the public spaces that are of major concern to us.
How are we doing that?
Mark Moses, from the KOSRA Committee, also heads up the Community Camera Fund (CCF). Started as a joint initiative between, Bushmans, Kenton, Riversbend, Merryhill and Natures Landing, the CCF funds the placement of cameras determined to be beneficial to the community. The fund also pays for the cleaning and monitoring of the cameras.
We invite all property owners in Kenton – especially the businesses – to make a monthly contribution to the Security Fund. This would enable us to budget for hiring numerous additional security guards for the holiday periods at Easter and Christmas. These guards are deployed and patrol in all the public areas in order to ensure the safety of holidaymakers and businesses.
Adequate security funds are critical to ensuring that Kenton continues to be a safe and attractive destination for holidaymakers and residents alike.

This is one of our many controversial topics. The fact remains that no matter what we do, they remain.
In terms of the Municipal By-Laws, car guards must be licensed by the Municipality to operate.
The immediate problem I see with this ‘lockdown’ is that there are no clear and distinct guidelines; everybody seems to be interpreting the guidelines the way that suits them best.
We would like to say a BIG THANK YOU to the few businesses in Kenton who contribute to the Security Fund and a BIG THANK YOU to those individuals who make their regular donations.
