Eyewitness News reporters Edwin Ntshidi and Theto Mahlakoana give updates on situations in the two areas.

Police in Hillbrow have had an uphill battle in their attempts to keep people indoors on the first day of the national lockdown enforced by government.

Eyewitness News reporter Edwin Ntshidi has been on the ground for most of the day.

He says police have had to clamp down on certain businesses and have had to disperse crowds.

Police are clamping down on illegal business. They have been on the streets trying to make people stay in their homes. However there was a resistance from some members of the public and police were forced to use pepper spray and sjamboks to push those who were on the streets into their homes.

They have been doing stop-and-search on suspecting vehicles and individuals. Just a few minutes away, they discovered what is suspected of being illegal firearms at one of the buildings.

They are closing some shops here, they started with a butchery.

Meanwhile EWN reporter Theto Mahlakoana spent the day in Zandspruit.

She describes how the area is in dire straits and how families of 10 are limited to a small space and residents have no running water.

The picture in Zandspruit is depressing. It is one of people who are well aware of the COVID-19 virus and its effects but their message was simple and that was 'what exactly was it that the government expected would happen to us during this crisis?' because they have absolutely no basic services, they have been protesting about this for years.
