- Joburg Mayor Herman Mashaba is concerned over the lack of consequences for criminals in South Africa
- This comes in response to the story of a man whose family had been forcibly evicted from his Alexandra home, attacked and then allegedly denied help by the police
- Mashaba feels something is fundamentally wrong with the Justice System in Mzansi
Herman Mashaba has shared his fears for the future of Mzansi, lamenting the lack of consequences for criminals.
In response to a harrowing story of alleged police failure, Mashaba shared his dim views of the system, saying that:
"One of my biggest fears about the future of our country is the lack of consequences for Real Criminals. Something fundamentally wrong with our National Criminal Justice System. When you raise this as a concern, you are immediately attacked, insulted and labelled."
This had come in response to a story of how a man and his family had been forcibly evicted from their home in Alexandra, with the police seemingly doing nothing to aid the man who had sustained a head injury during the attack.
Briefly.co.za reported that Mashaba had insisted that South Africa had nothing to apologise for, in response to profuse apologies being dished out to African countries after the xenophobic attacks.
The Mayor had been adamant that citizens, suffering from low employment rates and high crime statistics, should be on the receiving end of President Cyril Ramaphosa's damage control.
