Recently Radio Islam reported on the alleged brutal assault of Shireen Sheik and Naazneen Kader in Robertsham by two Booysens police officers. This followed an incident two days prior of alleged police brutality against Ikraam Seedat in Lenasia.
The men and women in blue are meant to serve and protect and South Africans need to feel safe when dealing with the police. However with the recent spate of alleged police brutality, Riah Phiyega’s comments are marred by irony.
