City and private donor announce R1m reward to catch killers of City official<p>​</p><p>'A private donor has approached me with a generous offer to help ramp up the reward to R1 million, for information leading to the successful prosecution of those responsible for the murder of a City official<em> </em>at the Delft Symphony Way housing project on 16 February 2023.<em> </em>We urge those with information to come forward so that we can see justice done for the family of Ms  Wendy Kloppers. We also continue to call on the South African Police Service to do whatever it takes to hunt down and find the perpetrators responsible for this violence. We have a clear message for the public, the Delft community, and the future beneficiaries of this housing project: help us find these thugs, and help us protect this housing project so that it is not derailed,' said Mayor Hill-Lewis.</p><p><strong> </strong></p><p>The motive for the shooting is unclear, but is part of a trend of violence directed at the housing project. The investigation is in the hands of the SAPS, but the City's SSIU is assisting. </p><p> </p><p>'This is a R500 million housing project for 3 300 beneficiaries, some of the most vulnerable in the metro including from Blikkiesdorp. The City will continue to pursue our six-point plan to help reduce the incidents of violence, criminality, and extortion at our housing projects, which is threatening some R1 billion in projects. Besides the R1 million reward for info to successfully prosecute the killers of our staff member, in general, we are also offering rewards of R5 000 for info leading to arrests of anyone targeting City housing projects with extortion and violence across the metro,' said Councillor Booi.</p><p> <strong><em> </em></strong></p><p><strong>Anonymous tip-offs welcomed</strong></p><p><strong>Call: 0800 1100 77</strong></p><p> </p><p>·       Tips received by the dedicated tip-off line are relayed to the relevant City agency. Once they have made an arrest/confiscation, etc. they will submit the application for consideration by the Rewards for Information Committee. We do have to caution the public that it could take several weeks or months after the arrest or confiscation is made for the reward to be paid out, once all relevant administrative processes have been completed.</p><p> </p><p>·       The system is NOT open to people under the age of 18.</p><p> </p><p> </p><p><strong>End</strong></p><p><br></p>2023-02-28T22:00:00ZGP0|#1d539e44-7c8c-4646-887d-386dc1d95d70;L0|#01d539e44-7c8c-4646-887d-386dc1d95d70|City news;GTSet|#62efe227-07aa-45e7-944c-ceebacca891dGP0|#9b08054d-9073-4920-b1e7-d0e5f9361b3b;L0|#09b08054d-9073-4920-b1e7-d0e5f9361b3b|reward system;GTSet|#2e3de6c1-9951-4747-8f53-470629a399bb;GP0|#633591e2-ed41-4816-9750-3d5f5090deda;L0|#0633591e2-ed41-4816-9750-3d5f5090deda|illegal activity;GP0|#4b1f612f-669f-47c2-b682-4bdfbd51e6df;L0|#04b1f612f-669f-47c2-b682-4bdfbd51e6df|Delft10
