Crime in Richmond Hill under the spotlight
So says Ward 5 councillor Terri Stander, responding this week to a Weekend Post article highlighting an increase in crime in the popular and trendy suburb in recent months.
While new restaurants have moved in to Richmond Hill and existing ones are expanding, others — like Mamacitas, which has cut ties with the Bay and relocated to Cape Town — have left, citing crime as a reason.
But, it is not all that bad according to advocates for the area, including Richmond Hill SRA chair Ed Richardson, who speaks to us this week on Behind the Herald Headlines with Daron Mann.
Joining the discussion are Stander and The Herald assistant editor: investigations Nomazima Nkosi who wrote the article.
