ATM calls for an inquest for the Phoenix murders

The African Transformation Movement has called for an inquest into the deaths of reportedly over 300 black people in Phoenix. The party also calls for the issue of firearms to be addressed. This comes after the mass looting spree that took place in KZN, community members in Phoenix, KZN were guarding their neighbourhood and even asked people to show proof of residence, this also led to blacks being beaten and shot. 

The real question is that was it necessary to use live ammunition on those masses and was it constitutional to shot to kill, close down the roads and to treat every black person like an enemy? Right now the country is questioning the motive behind the killings, yet no one has been held accountable for the killings of the black masses. NPA head, Shamila Batohi, says she is concerned about whether the country has the investigative skills to successfully prosecute those who instigated the recent violence in KZN and Gauteng.
