Johannesburg- The operation Dudula is meant to clean up the streets of South Africa from the illegal immigrants who are owning shops that had been selling alleged expired foodstuff in their shops, and drug dealers.
People show different views about this operation, especially on social media platforms whereby numerous occasions have been shown on interviews and videos of what are they intending to do for the communities.
However, a march was organized by the group members which consists mainly of residents from Soweto, accused undocumented foreign nationals of being responsible for the rising levels of crimes in their communities as well as prostitution syndicates and drug dens.
Nhlanhla Lux, the leader of the operation said in a statement released this morning, “community members who have submitted complaints to their police about the crime-related issue will be attended because they know who are they and where they live”.
Some operation members say that most of the informal settlements around Johannesburg are filled with illegal immigrants, and they know them.
“I don’t think the operation was created to divide black people because even if you can take the matter to the police it will take time for you to be attended. Many voices are better than one, and I’m supporting it”, said one of the Operation Dudula members from Soweto.
Their operations are conducted through a march that they say is not meant to be violent, but to help address all the necessary matters that are not fully attended by the officials.
