In the disturbing video, a police officer can be seen hitting the man with an open hand in what appears to be an unprovoked act. Colonel Robert Netshiunda, the police spokesperson, stated that several other officers also “ganged up on the same victim and attacked him.”

One officer is observed kicking the man who was already down and standing on top of him. This incident has raised serious questions about police conduct and accountability.

Provincial Commissioner Lieutenant General Mkhwanazi has demanded a detailed report on the circumstances leading to the attack. He emphasized that corrective steps would be taken against any officers found to have acted against the SAPS code of conduct and the Constitution of the Republic of South Africa.

Mkhwanazi reiterated that police officers must always be mindful of the Constitution and their code of conduct while executing their duties. He reminded officers that their primary role is to protect and serve, not to abuse their powers.

Mkhwanazi stressed that communities must feel safe in the presence of police officers, who are supposed to be their refuge rather than a source of fear.

He added that police can only use proportional, minimum force if under attack. Should the report indicate any wrongdoing by the officers, they will face internal corrective measures. “No one is above the law, and that includes police officers,” Mkhwanazi affirmed.
