Teens found wielding pangas in Knysna streets

Two 16-year-old black youths carrying pangas in a street in Knysna were arrested by police.

Sergeant Chris Spies said the two teenagers were walking down Peter Street and Khayelethu in Knysna on Monday afternoon.

“Members of the police received information about juveniles with possible sharp objects in their possession. The police responded and found the youngsters on the street.

“They were searched and a knife and two pangas were found hidden under their jackets,” said Spies.
Both of them were released into their parents’ care.

    Sjoe, laat my terug dink aan die optog in George, daar in 1995. Al die swart mans van Thembalethu het deur die straat verby my huis gedraf na die dorp toe. Hulle het hamers; ysters; pangas en goed bo hul koppe gehou soos hul draf. Ek was 5 jaar oud en na dit het ek nooit weer veilig op straat gevoel nie. Die stroom van gewapende mans het so 2 of 3 minute geduur. Daar is nou soveel mense in Thembalethu dat so ʼn draf seker 2 of 3 ure kan duur.
