Cape Town - The management of the South African Police Service in the Western Cape has issued a stern warning to community members who engage in mob justice attacks after the burnt bodies of four men were discovered at an informal settlement in Samora Machel on Tuesday morning.
The recent mob justice comes just two days after another four victims were assaulted in a mob attack in Mfuleni’s Covid informal settlement. Their bodies were alleged to have been dumped in a river, and despite the police divers effort, their bodies are yet to be found. The divers, instead, found two bodies in the river not linked to the missing four.
According to community members, the four men were between the ages of 20 and 25. They were known for terrorising the area, and they were dragged out of their homes, beaten and burnt in a field.
