Police have conducted a high-density operation in Tonga, Kamhlushwa, and Schoemansdal policing areas from Friday 28 April 2023 until early hours of Saturday 29 April 2023. The operation was carried out in partnership with other law enforcement agencies, including Mpumalanga Provincial Traffic, Nkomazi Local Traffic, Nkomazi Law Enforcement, Mpumalanga Economic Regulator, and the Department of Community Safety Security and Liaison. The operation was conducted to curb the number of crimes, including rape and robbery, that are mostly targeted at patrons leaving liquor outlets.


During the operation, the police found a number of expired foodstuffs and medications on the shelves of local shops. They confiscated the expired products to prevent locals from buying them. Additionally, the police found food that was ready for sale in a restaurant that was stored in a filthy refrigerator, and dirty water was allegedly used to prepare customers' meals. As a result, the police took action to prevent the sale of contaminated food.


With the assistance of the Mpumalanga Economic Regulator, the police arrested two suspects who were selling expired products without proper documentation. During the operation, the police encountered resistance from unruly patrons in Block A, who were throwing stones and bottles at them. Three members of the police sustained injuries, and one member was taken to a health facility for medical attention. Vehicles were also damaged by flying stones and bottles.


Despite the resistance, the police managed to complete their operation successfully. The police fined two suspects for illegally operating gambling machines in spaza shops, and five liquor outlets were fined for non-compliance. Additionally, the police closed down one shebeen and arrested the Assault GBH suspect. The operation was necessary to curb the number of crimes in the area, and the police will continue to monitor the situation to ensure the safety of residents.
