The community of Sebokeng in zone 17 held a meeting on the 23rd January 2022. The initiative was about lawlessness taking place around foreign shops area. The meeting was attended by the community and in the agenda was among other things was the fact that there were children who are hanging around the shops.

However, the community raised their concerns that apparently people are being robbed in these shops. Immediately after the meeting 13 foreign nationals and tuck-shop owners (Parkistanians, Somalians, Ethiopians)  to mention but few were instructed that as from Sunday 23rd January 2022 they should  close their shops at 8pm and open at  6am. No more people hanging around tuck-shops, every-one must just buy and go.
