Police say those who do not abide by lockdown rules will be arrested.

Home-brewed liquor and traditional beer were confiscated in Marabastad during another O Kae Molao-Basadi operation by Tshwane district police on Thursday morning.

“The operation focused on Covid-19 compliance under the disaster management act and the selling of alcohol is prohibited under level 3 restrictions,” said police spokesperson Captain Augustinah Selepe.

The women-led operation was also held in Brooklyn and Sunnyside.

It was led by Tshwane district commissioner Major General Tommy Mthombeni and Major General Yvonne Botsheleng.

“During the operation in Sunnyside, one of the shops was closed for operating without the proper legal documents. Medication was also seized,” said Selepe.
