CITY VIEWS: DO YOU THINK IT IS RIGHT FOR THE POLICE TO CANCEL SPORTS EVENTS DUE TO THE RIOTS?

ARNO VAN ROOYEN | VELOCITY
“No, the police should ensure that riots are under control so that day-to-day events can still go ahead. This is why we pay taxes.

If they cancel these events as a result of the riots what's next, the Olym-pics?”

NICHOLAS DERSLEY | LEBARA MOBILE
“Yes, If we are hosting people from other countries and portraying ourselves as a safe and stable nation, it is our job to maintain safety for the people. I think the level of violence witnessed this week justifies the actions of the police.”

JOHN WATSON | ECLIPTECH
“For safety reasons I think it is a good idea for the police to cancel the events. There is not a lot that can be done so people shouldn't overreact. People don't realise that most of the events have only been postponed, not cancelled.”
