“We are not going to turn a blind eye on such evil crime happening under our watch,” Mashaba said, adding that

“the country [South Africa] also owes an official apology to the 10.2 million unemployed South Africans who are today without jobs as a result of billions of counterfeit goods being brought illegally into the country, killing local manufacturing.”
