What Soweto Residents Woke Up To In Protea South Caused a Stir Online


It is quite alarming and upsetting that we have vehicles that are abandoned on the road like this after having been hijacked or stolen from their lawful owners, as seen when residents of Protea South (Soweto) discovered a white polo in the dumping site that had already been stripped.

Just think about it: someone's car has been stripped to the point that it's scarcely recognizable, and they have no way of getting justice. In many cases involving stolen vehicles, it is discovered that the true owner was continuing making the monthly payments for the car until it was taken, despite the fact that there is no insurance on the vehicle.

We all know that almost nothing is regulated in South Africa, and this leaves members of our society vulnerable to being taken advantage of by everyone from store owners to the government, including the persons whose automobiles are said to be in the possession of these second-hand part businesses.

If they can regulate this kind of business, we might not have to deal with as many of the criminal activities that are currently making life difficult for a lot of people. Someone needs to show us where they're getting their stock from.

The police are asking for the public's help in identifying the suspects and regaining control of any further automobiles that may have been taken or hijacked. The cops aren't performing their jobs because they're taking too long to make sure the criminals stay in jail for a very long time, which is why this crime epidemic persists.
