CAPE TOWN - The Khayelitsha Community Policing Forum has condemned a suspected mob justice killing.

A teenage boy accused of robbery, was beaten to death and his body was found in an open field yesterday in the Harare area.

The forum's Ronnie Busakwe said such incidents are never justified.

"As a CPF we're feeling bad about that because we're not encouraging the people to take the law in their own hands. You know sometimes they do that but when we check at the police station, there's no record against the person they were attacking."
