Peeing in public will cost you R40 000 in Durban

Entertainment March 8, 2016

There’s a new law (by-law) in town, if you are ever caught peeing in public and you happen to be in durban, you’ll be fined a hefty R40000, or face two years imprisonment, the new law is set to come into effect this coming friday.

The New by-law’s Chapter 7 reads:

“Any person who is convicted of an offence under this by-law is be liable to a fine of an amount not exceeding R40 000 or to imprisonment for a period not exceeding 2 years, or to both such fine and imprisonment,”

“In the case of a continuing offence, an additional fine of an amount not exceeding R200 or imprisonment for a period not exceeding 10 days, for each day on which such offence continues or both such fine and imprisonment, will be imposed.”

It also be determined by offense committed.

“Abusive, threatening or foul language or gestures will not be tolerated in public spaces. Neither will fighting, urinating or defecating in public.”

“The public will not be allowed to bath or wash in public unless it is part of a religious or cultural ceremony and permission has been sought. Any member of the public caught spitting, performing any sexual act, appearing in the nude or exposing genitalia will also face prosecution.”

It is reported that the aim of the new law is to regulate, control behaviour which might cause discomfort, annoyance or inconvenience the public – the aim is to prevent all of this from happening.

Although there are a lot of doubts from especially from Cheryl Johnson, of Save our Berea, who doesn’t think this will be enforced.

“But how are they going to police it? We have a spike of crime on the Berea. Nearly 20 Durban High School pupils have been mugged while walking to school since the beginning of the year. We have muggings in our parks on a regular basis. We can’t walk along our streets in safety,”

It gets even tougher.

“Consumption of liquor, being drunk in public, gambling and the use of drugs is forbidden. The public may also not lie down or sleep on any bench, street or sidewalk in a manner that prevents other people from using it. Begging for money or goods with gestures and words is also banned.”

Report coverage.
