While companies are still trying to figure out how they will recover from the negative impact by the Covid-19 lockdown, illicit trading of counterfeit goods seems to be succeeding in securing a spot in the market.
Ekhurhuleni Executive Mayor Mzwandile Masina said that the metro police officials at his municipality arrested foreign nationals who were illegally manufacturing goods.
13 Pakistan Nationals were arrested by the EMPD who also closed down a factory where they were producing Fake Food from rejected & expired raw materials.
