Pic: S.African PROHIBITION: COVID-19 insanity: Blacks with $100,000 of cigarettes! – My Comments


[The blacks can't survive without cigarettes and alcohol. I am sure there is a big "Black Market" (pun intended) going on with the illegal sales of these things. Again, you won't find whites doing this. But the non-whites are. Here is a bust of R1.5 million (a bit less than $100,000) of cigarettes!!! 

Its 3 weeks and I've not seen the army yet. This lockdown is showing that the Government's biggest problem is handling the non-whites. Locking them in their townships is making them crazy, and its getting worse. And its only been 3 weeks. We have 2 more weeks to go and we still don't know if lockdown will be removed then.
The Govt prevented the sale of cigarettes and alcohol during this stupid lockdown. 
I think 3 weeks is now taking a toll on the non-whites. They're starting to go crazy, whereas whites have just re-adjusted and we all just carry on from our homes. 
We're also running low on masks. Apparently we need 70 million of them or something.

Ten people have been arrested after the Tshwane Metro Police Department seized illicit cigarettes worth around R1.5 million.

Officers also seized R325 000 in cash during the bust.

The department’s officers were patrolling in Lyttelton, Centurion, on Tuesday when they confronted a man roaming the streets. He could not produce a plausible explanation for being out during lockdown, said the unit’s spokesperson Senior Superintendent Isaac Mahamba.

"He was searched and the officers found four packets of cigarettes. Upon further questioning, he led them [the officers] to a flat where he bought the cigarettes," Mahamba said.

The flat was raided by the officers.

"Nine people were found at the premises. The place was searched, and the officers discovered many boxes of cigarettes.

"The cigarettes found have an estimated street value of more than R1.5 million. Cash amounting to R325 000 was also seized."

The sale of cigarettes has been prohibited under the current lockdown regulations.

Mahamba said all 10 people, including the person who was found with the cigarettes, were arrested for contravening the lockdown rules.

One of the arrested suspects has also been charged with bribery after he allegedly offered a R3 000 bribe to the officers.

All 10 suspects are expected to appear in the Pretoria Magistrate’s Court soon.
