A street vendor was arrested at Esangweni taxi rank in Tembisa for selling newspapers and sweets during the 21-day lockdown.

Sihle Nkabinde was escorted by police on Monday, despite the announcement from co-operative governance and traditional affairs minister Nkosazana Dlamini-Zuma that informal traders could continue to earn a living during the lockdown.

Nkabinde tried to show her permit allowing her to trade to the officers, but was arrested and ordered to pack up her stock.
