No tents in streets, metro cops warn
Johannesburg - People will not be allowed to erect tents on public roads for festive season parties, Johannesburg metro police said on Monday.
"The tents will be confiscated and people will be fined R1 000, as erecting of tents is a contravention of the road by-laws," spokesperson Chief Superintendent Wayne Minnaar said.
"To get back your tents you will pay a further fine of R2 000. We have already confiscated tents in Alexandra and Ivory Park."
Minnaar also said people going to municipal parks would not be allowed to take liquor in.
"We have already started patrolling parks. It is a contravention of the park by-laws to take liquor onto the premises."
