Hostel dwellers threaten metro cops

DURBAN - Residents of a men’s hostel in Durban are threatening to unleash a war on the city’s metro police.

They are angered by a recent raid at the Dalton Hostel, where metro police alleged stole money and goods.

Hostel dwellers say money and expensive belongings went missing.

Armed with traditional weapons, they've marched in protest through the city center, demanding the city’s metro police stay away from their hostel.

They say they're not opposed to raids, but only if it's done by the South African Police Service (SAPS).

“We promise the metro cops a strong beating should they set foot in the hostel. It will be beating and nothing else,” said one resident.

City officials say the hostel dwellers' complaint is not without substance.
