According to a woman who refused to be named, she paid R1500 fine at Kgapane Police Station Yesterday for her two teenage boys who were arrested for walking in public without masks. “I just came back from the police station after my two sons were arrested, and I had to pay R1500 fine so that they can be released. I did not have money, but I had to make a plan as I could not watch them sleep in a police cells,” she said.
Community member, Ntebaleng Moilakgomo commended the police for doing a sterling job.The police are doing a great job, people should learn to abide by the rules to avoid unnecessary fines. Imagine being infected just because you did not have your mask on. People think they are doing President Ramaphosa a favour, whereas they are doing it for themselves and their loved ones,” she said.
It is now compulsory for everyone in South Africa to wear a mask when in public. Government has implemented this rule in an attempt to slow down the rate of COVID-19 infections. The number of new infections has shown a steady increase in recent weeks, despite stringent measures put in place by Government to flatten the curve.
