ANC CALLS FOR URGENT STEPS TO RESTORE NORMALITY IN JOHANNESBURG
The African National Congress (ANC) condemns the latest flare-up of violence and lawlessness around Jeppestown and #JoburgCBD.
Once again we urge our law-enforcemnent agencies to find a permanent solution to these sporadic incidents and ensure that stability and normality are restored.
We call on the police to be firm and uncompromising in dealing with criminals who, among other things, deal in drug and human trafficking, regardless of their nationalities or place of origin.
We urge relevant authorities to enforce by-laws and deal decisively against those who trade in counterfeit goods and conduct businesses illegally. The police must act harshly against these crimes, whether committed by South Africans or foreign nationals.
We welcome all foreigners who come to the country legally and who respect our laws.
