sandf thumb medium90 89EWN reports that the office of the military ombudsman has announced that it was investigating at least 52 cases from the public relating to allegations against as serving and former members of the SA national Defence Force (SANDF) during the national coronavirus lockdown.  

Many of the complaints related to heavy-handedness, undignified treatment and unlawful confiscation of property.  Last week, the High Court in Pretoria ordered that all officers involved in the killing of Alexandra resident Collins Khosa be suspended pending an investigation into his murder.  Khosa died after allegedly having been beaten by law enforcement officers during a lockdown enforcement operation in the township.  The office said that it had already started assessing the complaints lodged since the onset of lockdown, with some having already been allocated for investigation.
