Tighten security

The bombings of ATMs around the country should be taken seriously by the government.

The bombings of ATMs around the country should be taken seriously by the government.

The attacks should be seen as acts of terrorism by bandits who are bent on sabotaging the country's economy.

Shortly after the arrest last Thursday of a Soweto man believed to be the kingpin behind these bombings, heavily armed men bombed two ATMs at the Kagiso Mall on the West Rand.

These bombings could be attributed to the lack of control at certain mines where employees have easy access to explosives. A Westonaria magistrate has expressed shock at how easy it is to obtain explosives at mines.

We appeal to mine authorities to tighten security and instil discipline in the control of explosives.
