The news stories and visuals showing the increasingly volatile situation in parts of the country has the citizens fearful that the same could happen in the Western Cape.

Kfm Mornings called on Premier Alan Winde for his thoughts on what's happening and clarity on how the Western Cape is preparing itself in the event of public unrest.

Some of those visuals that I have been seeing over the last few days have been really scary

— Alan Winde, Western Cape Premier

Here in the province, it's not about police ... metro police or neighbourhood watch or private security, it's about everybody standing together... We've had a couple of scares but every single time everyone's pulled together, dealt with it and so far so good.

— Alan Winde, Western Cape Premier

We're analysing where the risk areas are

— Alan Winde, Western Cape Premier

The implications and the knock-on effects of what is going on. Obviously the longer it goes, the worse it gets. There's going to be long-term repercussions for what's happening, specifically in KZN.

— Alan Winde, Western Cape Premier

The next thing is going to be food shortages, medicine shortages. It is going to be a real real crisis.

— Alan Winde, Western Cape Premier

There needs to be real strong law and order put in place. That's what's got to happen there right now. It's got to be decisive, it's got to be strategic... it's got to be effective.

— Alan Winde, Western Cape Premier

What's the plan for the Western Cape in the event of public unrest?

Our own police force changing their shifts system, calling people back from leave... the metro police in the city, the officers, the law enforcement officers focusing on strategic points linking through to neighbourhood watches

— Alan Winde, Western Cape Premier

We had one attempt last night, people didn't even break in the door and neighbourhood watches, police, metro police... they were all there within minutes dealt with it.

— Alan Winde, Western Cape Premier

We've got our camera systems out... We have other dynamics as well, not only managing if there's any risk of a similar kind of vigilante... we've also got our own taxi issue that we're dealing with at the moment

— Alan Winde, Western Cape Premier
