Security officers in Cape Town CBD are concerned about the safety of visitors after two tourists were robbed recently. TSHIAMO MOKATSANE spoke to tourists on the street to find out how safe they felt in the city. 1 of 4 Samalina Fatum, from Holland, had arrived in Cape Town the previous night. She said she felt safe because people were friendly and kept their distance. She also said, people dont ask too many questions, so yes, I feel comfortable for now. George Quinn, from Ireland, said: I am not 100% sure because there are a lot of people telling me that it is not a safe place, so therefore you become paranoid and apprehensive. But where were staying, we are quite happy and we are safe there. Frank Gee, from Jersey in the British Channel Islands, said: At the moment, Cape Town is fine during the day, I dont have fears at all. But I dont think that I would come to the CBD at night. He said he had heard from other people that the area was not safe at night. Kate Palicer from Malawi said she felt safe but avoided going out at night and always locked her vehicle at traffic lights. Youve got to be aware because there are some of those who have kids to feed so there will be opportunists. She also said she always held her phone tightly because there is so much poverty and there are desperate people. There is such a mix of wealth in the city and we obviously look like we have more than those who are begging.
