On the 23rd law enforcement arrived in Wonderkop and Nkaneng to inspect if businesses are in compliance with the set out regulations. They found that there was no compliance by community and businesses as one of the spaza’s was operating without a permit and selling cigarettes. It is alleged that the owner got a beating and was arrested although he later returned but kept the shop closed the community assumed that he paid a bribe.

The raid was as a result of a stabbing that took place in Nkaneng. And on the 25th April police and soldiers were warning people in the streets to stay indoors. The shops, penal beaters and car washes have been closed. Police said if the community won’t comply then reparations will be faced.
