JMPDTimesLIVE reports that the Johannesburg Metro Police Department (JMPD) on Monday said it expected the report into an investigation into the conduct of officers who were at the scene when an Alexandra man was allegedly beaten to death to be completed on Tuesday.  

Collins Khosa was allegedly beaten by soldiers — in the presence of JMPD officers — at his home on 10 April during the a lockdown enforcement operation.  He later succumbed to his wounds.  His family went directly to the Constitutional Court in a bid to hold the government accountable for his death.  JMPD spokesperson Wayne Minnaar said they did not argue the matter in court, but agreed at the hearing with the attorneys of the applicants that JMPD would conduct an internal investigation to determine whether the conduct of the officers warranted disciplinary action or not.  “Because of this agreement, JMPD did not see the need to wait for the judgment and it commenced with internal investigations.”
