The Rustenburg Local Municipality has so far recorded significant successes since the inception of the Safe and Clean City Campaign.
The municipality in partnership with the Hawks (Investigative Unit of the South African Police Service) had on Monday embarked on a special operation focused on uprooting crime in the city involving scrap yards operating illegally and suspected of dealing in stolen copper cables and materials allegedly stolen from Eskom infrastructure.
The operation uncovered other illegal activities and practises inconsistent with the law, illegal trading in different business fields, including stores selling expired goods and food products.
The municipality encourages the community to participate in the campaign by reporting criminal activities with the South African Police Service.
