Was it New Year already six months ago? Unbelievable how time passes so quickly or is it just that everyone is so busy that it feels like that.

An impressed Clubview resident says:
Within five minutes after a burglary, the security armed response and SAPS Wierda Bridge Constable Masela and Constable Sithole arrived at my house.
I especially wish to thank the two SAPS officers for the absolute professional manner in which they conducted themselves.
