It will be a useless effort by the ruling party to becuase this is just a weak crime prevention strategy the must block the products from entering country becuase going shop to shop will just waste their time and money.

It the SAPS dont have right strategies to combate crimes then they should consult otherwise the countries.

Goods worth over R24 million is a big figure. And show that someone is not doing his job right .

The big question lies to you as SAPS How did the goods pass all the security apparatus to be on the shelves.The problem is within SAPS regulatory organisations not with the owner of the goods.
