This morning on 11 March, there was a demonstration against the “monetization” of the Covid vaccine held outside the Johnson & Johnson building on the Main Road. The banners and posters indicated a “People’s campaign” with messages such as “no patent profiteering in a pandemic” and “no Covid monopolies”.
Right in the hub of bustling Tokai / Dreyersdal border is Zwaanswyk Village which is a gated community, situated off Main Road next to Zwaanswyk High School.

The Kirstenhof Crime Watch camera on the corner of Lente and Tokai Roads, has already played an integral part in the arrests of suspects in incidents of crime and to support the expansion drive of the KCW, Chas Everitt has as a committed local business and indeed a commercial resident in the area donated a R3000 shortfall to finance an additional camera.
According to Andre de Villiers of Chas Everitt’s Kirstenhof / Tokai office (opposite the BP Garage on Tokai Road) it is crucial that all local businesses assist to the extent they can in these efforts as criminal activity has reached a point in the area where unless addressed it could affect property values negatively.
The efforts of the dedicated and hard working team at KCW are a credit to the area, and we can also be very pleased to have a responsive local police station where there is an excellent relationship with the community.
As estate agents active in the Constantiaberg area we have seen many examples where the community has stood together taken back “their streets” and as criminal activity is brought under control prices swing up again. One of the first questions buyers have today about every property is “what is the crime like in this neighbourhood?” It is thus in the interest of every property and business owner to stand together and take the issue of crime very seriously as it impacts substantially and directly on the asset value of property as well as lifestyles of residents.
The Tokai Neighbourhood Crime Watch Public meeting took place on the 24th July 2014.
This presentation was then followed by an update on crime stats and a very interesting slide presentation showed, among other things, the correlation between the timing of crime incidents and the presence of neighbourhood watch patrollers. The obvious point being more patrollers are needed. A reportback on the security cameras was also given – highlighting how effective they have been in number-plate recognition and also as silent witnesses to incidents such as bike-jacking and burglaries. The investment by Tokai residents is reaping the rewards, but please keep up your contributions to the Tokai Residents Association, as part of the funds raised will go towards the installation of more much-needed cameras.
The neighbourhood watch has asked that Tokai residents to bring along friends and neighbours. After the meeting there will be chance to chat over tea or coffee and meet the Tokai Neighbourhood Crime Watch committee.
The Tokai Neighbourhood Crime Watch has organised the second of the series of the ACT Personal Safety Talk ‘Defend Yourself: Weapon Choices’. Two talks will be hosted this month at two different venues (content of both presentations will be the same) for the convenience for those attending.

- Defending yourself – the right weapon choice?
- Why do you need a weapon?
- What is available?

- Pros and cons?
