Callers tell Eusebius that police should raid China City as well

Gauteng police raided the streets of Johannesburg on Wednesday looking for counterfeit goods.

Police also held 560 undocumented foreign nationals. Seven police officers were arrested for alleged corruption and defeating the ends of justice following the raid.

Callers on the Eusebius McKaisre open line shared their views on the raid.

I understand these people were looking for counterfeit goods. Those Ethiopians selling these goods in the CBD are getting their stuff from China Mall and Dragon City. If the government is serious why can't they go to China City?

Mike, Caller

The people that are selling things in downtown Joburg are ordering their stuff in China City. You only use cash at China City and they are not paying anything.

Mbulelo, Caller

I have been to China City for the past two days now and I tell you the economy is booming there. Those guys are busy unpacking new stock that is coming in from overseas and they are repackaging it. You can buy anything you want there.

James, Caller

I like the idea of raiding in Joburg but the police shouldn't only concentrate on the foreign nationals because for me Joburg is very dangerous. There are young South African guys holding knives who will attack and hurt you. They must bring police from other provinces because the police in Joburg are collaborating with the drug dealers there.

Vincent, Caller
