Earlier this week it was reported that a swastika symbol had been spray painted on an electrical high voltage box in Macassar (which is near Somerset West). We have reported the incident to the municipality and the Ward Councillor responsible for the area. They are outraged at this blatant act of antisemitism and will have the Nazi symbol removed. We are investigating the matter further.
We thank the community of Macassar and the City officials for taking this matter seriously and to the community members for reporting the incident.
The Cape SAJBD will continue to fight against all forms of antisemitism, discrimination and hate.
