The overwhelming numbers of African gangs causing havoc around Melbourne have reportedly disappeared shortly following the Victorian state election.

Victorians say they now feel safe to put their bins out alone or even go out for dinner in the CBD.

“I feel safe enough to get out of my car now the election is over,” says one local man.

Analysts say Premier Daniel Andrews has either solved the African gang problem in a little over one week or the gangs have moved to Sydney for the upcoming New South Wales election.
