The #fireworks raid is done. 5 JMPD vans are packed with confiscated fireworks. Joburg EMS spokesperson Robert Mulaudzi explains.
Officials have completed their clampdown on firework vendors in Johannesburg’s city centre.
They filled five JMPD vehicles with confiscated goods and issued fines to transgressors.
Disaster management, together with the Johannesburg Metro Police, confiscated thousands of rands worth of fireworks in an operation that began on December 27.
Emergency Services spokesperson Robert Mulaudzi said that the move was aimed at ensuring that only those who were licensed to trade could sell fireworks. He added that this would assist in cutting down on the spread of illegal fireworks which may be dangerous.
