:"D. How dare they enable poor folk to survive!The BASTARDS!!!
Perhaps it is; but given the need they fulfill. We need to stop & reevaluate how macro policies make it necessary.Apparently that is anti-competitive...
Whilst I don't, can't, dispute the allegations; I can't help but smell generalization-sauce all over. I've had the priviledge of interacting with a few and those I'd dare call friends are genuinely legit business owners that beat the odds to carve a life out for themselves here.I found it out recently....
1) smuggle hijacked cargo ships containers to SA.
2) steal containers from ports.
3) hijack local trucks
4) steal local warehouses
1) sell lower than the cost prices
2) expand any position available in the area.
3) wide range of goods / products. anything from ipod, cell phone to milk power, nappies, toilet paper.
they rob the local / foreign legal owners, and sell their loots locally below the cost prices.
their practices are aim to kill all local small businesses.
their actions create more dangerous and damages than cheap chinese imports and nigerian drug dealers to SA.
Was a war zone in PE last night... Motherwell, Kleinskool, KwaDesi, Kwazakhele, Zwide, New Brighton, etc.
Started out as a Somalian shop looting spree then spread to the Chinese shops.
All this over a single incident where the Somalian perpetrator has already been arrested.
There have been some arrests but SAPS are overwhelmed. It would appear that these attacks are being well co-ordinated, making it difficult for an already stretched SAPS to contain/prevent/react. There are also plenty of kids involved and you can imagine the uproar if a few were to be shot and/or killed.
Yes. "Steal goods from local warehouses" has a completely different meaning to "steal local warehouses".
