According to a report by Aljazeera’s Fahmida Miller from Cape Town, the South African army has been ordered to stay for an extra three months in parts of Cape Town suffering gang violence.

Troops have backed police in an area notorious for drug gangs since last month.

Government statistics says the number of murders on the Cape Flats have almost doubled to 90 this year despite the army sent in.

The military says soldiers were sent to the Cape Flats to create safe environments so police could do their jobs

However, people living there say the military’s presence has not really helped. They say soldiers are only seen on the streets a few times a week, often for just a few hours at a time.

The army deployment was meant to last three months but it has been given extra three months extension.
