As part of Operation Buya Mthetho, an initiative between the City of Johannesburg and the JMPD, the DA-led City of Johannesburg has been removing un-roadworthy, unlicensed and illegal vehicles from the roads across the city since the beginning of the year.
One part of this multi-focused operation is to ensure the restoration of road safety and law and order on the roads.
Over 500 un-roadworthy, unlicensed and illegal minibus taxis, and over 60 illegal dumper trucks have been impounded by JMPD since the commencement of Operation.
“We will not surrender to lawlessness. Illegal, non-compliant and irresponsible operators cannot expect us to look away whilst they play with the lives of commuters and other motorists on the roads”
– Herman Mashaba, Mayor of Johannesburg
