Nigerians Doing Business in KemptonPark are Allegedly Frustrated, They now Sit Outside Doing Nothing

The government of South Africa is working to stop the era of exploitation there. You can see this in the many operations conducted to remove unqualified people from the informal trading sector.

Some weeks ago, in Johannesburg's De Villiers Road and neighboring neighborhoods, an effort to remove illegal informal traders from South Africa began. Invasion of the affected districts by police and Johannesburg government officials to drive out the informal traders was successful.

In a recent turn of events, we've learned that municipal efforts to coordinate informal companies on the East Rand's Kempton Park have made life difficult for Nigerians doing business there.

Many East Rand business owners have already felt the effects of an operation being duplicated by city authorities from Johannesburg.

People in Nigeria who have been displaced by government action are waiting about on the sidewalks for things to improve so they can get back to work.

"Nigerians at Kempton park, just decide to take out chairs and sit in the middle of the pavements, guys Johannesburg Metropolitan Police Department is doing raids what is the City of Ekurhuleni doing, that white woman what is she doing?" Baloyi wrote on Twitter.
