handcuffsThe New Age reports that four bogus doctors were arrested in Mahikeng after they were found offering abortion services yet could not produce proof that they were trained in the field.  

The four were held during a crackdown carried out by police as part of Operation Fiela II that started on Friday and ran until Monday.  For some time, Mahikeng residents have complained their town had been taken over by people promising pain free abortions among other so-called services advertised in graffiti and on posters pasted on every street pole and other structures, including buildings around town.  Community safety and transport management MEC Mpho Motlhabane launched Operation Fiela II on 2 February in Klerksdorp.  North West police spokesperson Lt Col Adéle Myburgh said:  “The operation is aimed at addressing maintaining law, order, peace, security and stability and to reclaim the space or areas controlled by criminals and to create a conducive environment for all people in South Africa to participate in social and economic activities.”
