Johannesburg will allow the installation of security devices on tombstones from next year in a bid to curb theft. Alan Buff, who oversees the city’s cemeteries, said that a deal has been entered into with a private company that will install microchip transmitters into tombstones.
The system is designed to detect movement and trigger off sirens. “Then we will be able to immediately locate the area where a tombstone has been moved and we will be able to track it down,” Mr Buff told AFP.
