Mamabolo said, "operations like these by our law enforcement agencies definitely have a positive impact in terms of two things: one -- making sure that we enforce protocols, laws, and regulations relating to road safety. Secondly, they are definitely impacting the space because we're checking compliance with protocols for COVID-19."
