Vandalism of public property on the increase in Buffalo City

The demand for valuable metals together with increasing poverty levels, has seen an increase in the vandalism of public property in the Buffalo City Metro in the Eastern Cape. Vandals are targeting historic monuments, statues and street lights. And residents are concerned that authorities are not dealing with the problem.
They also feel that a low conviction rate for these crimes encourages perpetrators to continue with their crimes.
