Illegal immigration has become a pressing issue in South Africa, sparking concerns about its impact on the economy, job opportunities, and community safety.
In response, local residents are taking matters into their own hands to address this issue in their communities.
The taxi drivers around Bree Taxi Rank are a good example of this.
They recently made headlines for their brave actions against illegal immigrants who were doing unofficial business in their area.
Taxi drivers were worried that these traders were leaving trash around and not following government rules about trading.
Together with the Johannesburg Metropolitan Police Department, the South Africa Police Service has also taken action by arresting a number of people in the area who didn’t have proper papers.
