Illegal traders are throwing stones at law enforcement officials in the Johannesburg Central Business district and this seems to have caused a lot of commotion, because the individuals who have been selling the goods in the streets have been selling counterfeit goods, so now the owners of Brands have complained about this.
The law enforcements have been preasured to deal with this matter very quickly in order to please the brand owners and to also get rid of a illegal activity that is happening in the country, the law enforcers seized all the counterfeit goods which they discovered on the road and the suspects are not even hiding inside shops - well some of them are but most of them can be found if you pull up by the side of the road you'll find them selling their goods to the general public in the Central Business District.
This has been going on for many years now unabated and it has caused the Central Business District to be a very crowded place, whenever you are walking around town there is not enough space to be working on the pavement because of the street vendors taking up the space.
You have to also walk on the roads along with the vehicles this has become a serious problem because it makes the whole place look very unsightly and overcrowded, the Central Business district is much nicer when it's clean and walkable.
Now it seems like the foreign nationals who are operating the area are displaying some kind of aggression and fighting the law enforcers of the country, which is something that is frowned upon and you'd never expect to see in another country so why are the police in this country tolerating it.
It is unclear if the South African Police Services has proven to be incapable of fighting criminals or dealing with crowds, because it has completely failed to take the upper hand when it comes to these issues.
