Last week a prefab mobile structure on a municipal sports field used as a shelter by the Dunoon Neighbourhood Watch was set ablaze. Minutes after the ALIU left, shacks were being rebuilt. Suspicion for the blaze fell on the land occupiers, but they deny any responsibility for the fire that destroyed the neighbourhood watch offices.
They refused to talk to GroundUp about anything to do with the fire. Station commander Brigadier Marius Stander said no arrests have been made; the suspects are unknown, and no information was forthcoming from the community.
Coordinator of the neighbourhood watch Noluthando Ludziya said the Dunoon Primary School had donated the prefab mobile structure to them last year July. The watch had been struggling since with no offices or shelter to change clothes or to have coffee breaks during night patrols.
For example domestic violence; husbands chasing out their wives, throwing their clothes out the house; landlords fighting with tenants for non-payment of rentals, and also [when] people sell one RDP house to more than one person. We resolve … all these issues. She accused the police of not supporting the watch and having let them down when patrol members were threatened.
He said neighbourhood watches are established to be the eyes and ears of the police and should not to act outside the law by making illegal arrests as such actions may be unlawful and expose themselves as well as SAPS to civil action.

Then now. Despite the obvious lack of things to do in the town unless your a pensioner, Dunoon falls into probably the most boring places to live in. So as the council decides to build another housing scheme in the Ardenslate area to stuff more junkies in, the future is looking grim.
As violence erupts between the drug dealers so well placed by the council, and as they continue to scrounge benefits and stab each other over drugs …. As crime and deprivation as well as boredom rises within the town, it will add to the cess pit it already is. With a high school that looks good but continues to deliver awful resultsthe new breed of Dunoon arseholes is being created. As unemployment and boy racer cars become more frequent, I wonder if they can mess this place up any more than it already is — So Argyll council, good job!
