SAPS Issues Sobering Reminder: No Drinking and Driving Ahead of Rugby World Cup Final

SAPS Urges Rugby Fans to Stay Sober and Safe Ahead of World Cup Final

Warning Against Drunk Driving

With the Rugby World Cup final between the Springboks and New Zealand on the horizon, the South African Police Service (SAPS) is sending a clear message to rugby enthusiasts across the nation: do not drink and drive.

The final is set to unfold in Paris, France, at 21:00 on Saturday, and with celebrations anticipated throughout South Africa, the police are issuing a stern caution.

Monitoring Celebrations Nationwide

The police have stated their intent to closely monitor various leisure spots, including fan parks and public gatherings before, during, and after the Rugby final.

This proactive approach is aimed at ensuring the safety and security of these events while upholding the law.

Athlenda Mathe, the National Police spokesperson, emphasized that the National Crime Combatting Forum (NCCF), comprising all Provincial Commissioners, has collaboratively discussed operational plans.

These plans are designed to safeguard these gatherings and enable the police to enforce the law effectively.

Operation SHANELA: A Comprehensive Strategy

Mathe further disclosed that General Fannie Masemola is content with the operational framework in place for tonight’s festivities, a part of OPERATION SHANELA.

This operation encompasses regular roadblocks, stop-and-search procedures, and the active pursuit of wanted suspects.

The SAPS is not only taking measures to ensure public safety but is also seeking cooperation from those attending these public viewing venues to act responsibly.

A Call for Responsible Celebrations

The South African police are urging citizens to remain vigilant of their surroundings during the celebrations.

Above all, they underscore the importance of refraining from drinking and driving, as such behavior will face strict consequences.

Ensuring Safety During Celebrations

The SAPS’s proactive stance in safeguarding public gatherings during celebratory events like the Rugby World Cup final is commendable.

As the excitement mounts, the appeal to refrain from drinking and driving serves as a crucial reminder of personal responsibility and safety.

While celebrating, it is essential to maintain a balance between enjoyment and responsible conduct to ensure everyone’s well-being.
