Abstract

Woldiefstal is reeds geruime tyd 'n groot probleem in veral die kommunale gebiede van die Oos-Kaap. Volgens statistiek is wol uit 41 skeerhuise gesteel en wol van drie gemeenskappe is in transito gekaap in die 2014/15-seisoen. Die waarde beloop meer as R1,6 miljoen. Onlangs is 91 wolbale ter waarde van R1,3 miljoen van kommersiële produsente gesteel toe die vragmotor wat die wol na Port Elizabeth vervoer het, gekaap is. Dit is dus duidelik dat wol waardevol genoeg is vir misdadigers om dit selfs met geweld te bekom!

Wool theft has been a major problem for some time, especially in the communal areas of the Eastern Cape. According to statistics, wool was stolen from 41 shearing sheds and shearing wool from three communities was hijacked in transit in the 2014/15 season. The value amounted to more than R1,6 million. Recently, 91 wool bales from commercial producers worth R1,3 million were stolen when the truck of wool en route to Port Elizabeth was hijacked. It is clear that wool is valuable enough for criminals to obtain it even by force!
