Tourist Robbed in Camps Bay

Cape Town - A German tourist was robbed in a Camps Bay, Cape Town guest house on Tuesday morning, Western Cape police said.

"The complainant alleged that he woke up and found two unknown men in his bedroom. The one suspect was armed with a firearm and the other with two knives," Captain Frederick van Wyk said in a statement.

The 32-year-old man's hands were tied and €100 and R3 000 in cash was stolen, along with a laptop computer, a video camera, a digital camera and two cellular phones.

"It appears that the suspects gained access to the house through a kitchen window."

His three companions slept through the robbery.

Just what the tourist industry needs.

These criminals are self-destuctive, ie of their own people's fortunes; sooner or later the penny will drop that this threatens tourism income and a huge tax base; and this is the only reason that might persuade the 'authorities' to implement the death penalty; a threat on their own well-being.

Forget abut the well-being of the rest of us.
