Police in KwaZulu-Natal are denying accusations officials used excessive force in dealing with protesters in Chatsworth. Police fired rubber bullets and arrested about 20 protesters on Monday evening.

The protest was sparked by the killing of 9-year-old Sadia Sukhraj during a hijacking outside a school in Shallcross. KZN SAPS Spokesperson, Jay Naiker, speaks to eNCA’s Dasen Thathiah.

  1. Every single MALE police that were seen in the videos, need to loose weigh. I shudder to imagine how anyone of you would save someone if running was involved….

    Have a little shame, you are a cop, since you don’t protect the community as police AT LEAST look the part.
