2012-10-08 11:18

Cape Town - A suspected thief was stoned to death in Khayelitsha, Cape Town, according to a report on Monday.

The Cape Argus reported that the man's body was found in Kuyasa's School Site around 09:00 on Sunday.

The man was found lying in the road with two cement blocks next to him.

The killing brings to 17 the number of alleged criminals killed by a mob in Khayelitsha in the last year.

Western Cape Premier Helen Zille established a commission of inquiry earlier this year to investigate an alleged relationship breakdown between police and the community.

Public hearings would be held at the end of this month.

    People are totally fed up with crime and useless police. Not condoning, but understanding.

  • Daniel Mah - 2012-10-08 11:47

    a suspect - that doesnt warrant mob justice at all

      jason.sole.92 - 2012-10-08 12:02

    People are sick and tired of the police not doing their jobs, the justice system failing and the crime that is spiralling out of control!

PEOPLE ARE BRINGING DEATH SENTENCE INTO THEIR OWNS HANDS AS GOVERNMENT DOES NOT WANT TO INPOSE IT , PHAMBILI NGE MOB JUSTICE PHAMBILI !!!

      jason.sole.92 - 2012-10-08 12:54

      Not only the ppl in the flats and townships. Us here in the suburbs should take a note from these guys.

      I just worry that someone may decide that I have done something I haven't done - but I do understand the frustration.....
