Khayelitsha residents living in fear for their lives

The Khayelitsha residents have been reported by Eye-Witness News as living in fear and uncertainty for their lives. This comes after the police have reportedly failed to erect a single arrest following the triple murder that took place some days back.

Wednesday saw a memorial service being held for one of the victims.Ludwe Vara, who is the Khayelitsha leader is reported to have stated that the members of the community were living in great fear for their lives as they do not know who will be killed next. The police have not made any arrests despite the hints from the community members who may have pulled the trigger that killed three people. The residents will only have peace of mind when the culprit/s gets arrested.

It is worrying that despite the possible leads availed to the police, there is no arrest that has been made by the police in Khayelitsha. One wonders why there is a lack of progress in this case. The National Police Commissioner Mr Khehla Sitole reportedly got served with a notice of suspension by President Ramaphosa over alleged misconduct.

Can this be the reason why there is no progress in regard to the solving of criminal cases by the police?

It is not a secret that where there is no proper leadership, there is no guarantee that there will be a positive development. If the top cop in the country failed to serve his office in an honest manner, there can be no guarantee for the solving of crimes in a proper manner. The killer of the three women is still out on the streets walking and doing everything freely. This is one of the reasons why crimes are high in South Africa. The criminals know that they can get away with crimes as the law enforcers are not doing enough.
