Soweto woman released following arrest for selling atchar

More than 15,000 people have been arrested for breaking lockdown regulations in Gauteng alone. This was revealed by provincial Police Commissioner Elias Mawela during a joint operation with the army in Soweto. Officials arrested the owner of butchery at Bara taxi rank for not having the proper papers and selling expired meat.

Those caught outside without a proper reason were also arrested. For us to arrest over 15,000 people, it tells us one thing that people don’t see this virus as a threat,” said Mawela.

“We’re not happy about it, but we have no choice. We must apply the laws of the country.”
But visuals of a woman who was arrested for selling atchar without a permit, caused outrage. We’ll look into that,” said Mawela. “These are some of the things which we need to correct.”
