Paramedics robbed in Nyanga

Members of the Western Cape Government Health’s Emergency Medical Services (EMS) were attacked while responding to a call in Nyanga this morning.

The duo was robbed at gunpoint and their belongings were stolen. No one was injured in the attack. 

They have since opened a case at the Nyanga Police Station and the circumstances are being investigated.

Following the attack, New Cross Roads and Phillipi have been declared red zones for the next 24 hours. This could result in delays as EMS personnel cannot enter these areas without a police escort.
