Khayelitsha Extortion Racket

Khayelitsha Extortion Racket

29 October 2020 12:13 PM

Guest: Ndithini Tyhido

Hair salons, hawkers and child care centres are among small businesses being extorted by gangsters in Khayelitsha.
This is according to the Khayelitsha Development Forum, which hosted a prayer service in the area over the weekend where residents stressed that they'd had enough and called for action from authorities.
The forum’s Ndithini Tyhido said even pedestrians were being intimidated to pay protection money.
In some cases, residents have even had to show the criminals their payslips so they can decide on an amount of money to be extorted.
“There is too many of those cases. This started with these people extorting the foreign national-owned shops and now they are seeing the expansion of the income stream network to private and individual households and smaller businesses. And the problem here is the targeting of the poorest of the poor.
