Jo'burg Metro Police Department - JMPD in its quest to make Johannesburg a clean and conducive environment has been eradicating unpermitted street traders and impounding their goods in the city.
Take a look at the JoburgMPD post below,
"Please enquire how to obtain an Informal Trading permit at your local municipality offices to avoid impoundment. #BuyaMthetho block patrols conducted by #JMPD officers in the Joburg CBD day & night. Removing illegal street traders & impounding their goods."
Some South Africans have reacted to this in different ways, take a look at some of their responses below;
"You should be doing this everywhere because I guarantee you 80% of informal traders don't have the required documents."
"I like what the JMPD is doing. Bit by bit, they are cleaning Joburg."
"Take everything. These illegal foreigners are doing as they please in our country."
"One thing you have done right."
