The Rustenburg Local Municipality together with the South African Police Services on the 15th February 2018 embarked on a joint operation of clamping down of illegal businesses, brothels and all illegal activities that are operating within the CBD. The joint operations aims to root out all the illegal joints, that are a nest for illegal activities and a harbour for prostitutes and all illegal immigrants
The joint operation saw several closing of illegal salons and scrapyards which were in contravention of the by-laws of the Municipality. Illegal immigrants were apprehended who either had false documentation or had no documentation at all.
The joint operations are a part of the broader activities of the Safe and Clean City Campaign that the Municipality is embarking on with the objective of fighting the scourge of drug trafficking, human trafficking and prostitution. The Safe and Clean City Campaign, and the regular joint operations with the South African Police Services will ensure that Rustenburg becomes a Safe and Clean City for all to live in.
