Prostitutes vs Paying Property Holders

As a resident and property owner on prince Alfred Street, Pietermaritzburg, I am appalled by the lack of speedy and effective response to prostitution, from the police and counselors.

This detestable crime – prostitution, has been left to grow and expand as another successful business enterprise on Prince Alfred Street. Property value has decreased and left owners desperate to sell to oblivious purchasers.

Being central and a convenient residential area, prostitutes have taken over nightly! While residents enjoy peace and comfort in the day, the looming horror of what the night holds is a nagging fear everyday. I urge people in charge to take action against this heinous crime that’s robbed decent people of their freedom to buy property and reside peacefully in convenient areas.

    Besides that it is a criminal offence, it is also against municipal bylaws (using a residential property for uses other than what it was zoned for). I suggested you call the Municipality, who is currently NOT very busy seeing that there are nobody attaneding to the potholes and cleaning of the verges
