Body discovered in Phillipi East
A man has been killed in a suspected incident of mob justice in Phillipi East.
CAPE TOWN - A body was discovered in Phillipi East on Thursday evening in what appears to be another incident of mob justice.
The Western Cape Community Policing Board said it is waiting on police to confirm the circumstances surrounding the death.
Several people have been killed by mobs in the province in recent months.
In June, a man was assaulted and set alight by angry Makhaza residents after he allegedly snatched a woman’s handbag.
Many communities take the law into their own hands, as they feel the justice system has failed them.
Meanwhile, Premier Helen Zille is currently consulting lawyers about setting up a commission of inquiry into the apparent breakdown in relations between police and the Khayelitsha community.
