JOHANNESBURG - Civil society organisations have sounded the alarm over police raids on people’s homes in Gauteng and KwaZulu-Natal where officers were searching for looted goods.
Following tip-offs from the community, the army and police have been raiding homes, with some questioning the legality of such operations.
The C19's People's Coalition's Tauriq Jenkins has taken issue with the raids, claiming that police were targeting poor people with undue force. He said that government's plan to destroy the stolen goods was devoid of moral logic.
