DA debate on economic impact of theft and vandalism of public infrastructure set for 1 September
15 July 2022
Note to Editors: Please find attached soundbite by Mat Cuthbert MP.
The DA is excited to announce that our debate of national importance on the economic impact of theft and vandalism of public infrastructure will take place on 1 September 2022.
South Africa’s economy continues to suffer with devastating effects on the citizens. Theft and vandalism of public infrastructure costs State-owned enterprises (SOEs) R7 billion each year, and results in R187 billion in economic losses to our country.
We need a whole-of-society approach – something the DA continues to successfully implement where we govern through Community Infrastructure Protection Patrols involving the Metro Police, councillors, neighbourhood and community watches, and Community Policing Forums (CPFs).
