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.

This is a direct result of state negligence. They leave people with no other choice.

Imagine if you can call the police for a crime, they arrive promptly, catch the criminal, the state sentences them to a hefty jail term of 20 years, and they actually serve the jail time. How many people would really go through the bother of rounding people up and burning them alive?

Not:
You call the police, no-one answers the phone for 20 minutes.
Then when you do manage to get through, they send through 2 overworked officers in 2 hours.
They catch the criminal.
The state takes 2 years to get them to court, in the meantime, they are released on bail for R200.
They commit the same crime again, are caught again, and are finally denied bail.
At the court, by some miracle the police collected the right amount of evidence and are given their hefty jail sentence of 20 years, however they are released 1 year later for good behaviour.

Or they help those who loot and plunder and pillage SA's coffers empty whilst laughing all the way to their R130mln homestead, being arrested for taking the piss out of the SA justice system and then being released with a life-threating 18-month emergency ailment.

Then people wonder why we are frustrated and looking for a more just and better life across the ocean in countries that we don't necessarily want to move to.

Yikes! A popular spot for dumping bodies?

Which is what makes the "warning" so ironic. It is all they good at. Walk around with a hat jailing people without masks and "sorry for the inconvenience" when someone gets raped.

Just let them all kill each other. One way to sustainably get rid of informal settlements.

When I rocked up at the cop shop with the last criminal they were all friendly...
I half expected the guy to get a free Wimpy breakfast as he been arrested so many times...
Criminal Activity Club Card scenario....

(And this is also true...another guy I caught got locked up for a while...was released...and arrested again for trying to .....get this....steal the geysers at the police station! )
