Someone must account for law enforcement’s failure to prevent riots

The chief executive of the South African Commission on Human Rights, Celiso Tipanianne, says they will consider a hearing following last week’s events.

On Friday (July 23rd), the South African Commission on Human Rights (SAHRC) hosted a dialogue with various organizations focused on the civil unrest and looting that took place in certain parts of KwaZulu-Natal and Gauteng last week.

The violence has killed more than 300 people, and police are accused of reacting late to the disruption to the country’s economy.

The main purpose of this was to get South Africans to talk about the incident and to understand what was behind it and what needed to be done to ensure that we would never face it again.
