Here Is What Happened To Eight Metro Police Who Brutally Did This To Three Men

The Independent Police Investigative Directorate (IPID) has yet to confirm the eight Tshwane Metro Police Department (TMPD) policemen alleged of sjambokking three individuals earlier this month at the Vermeulen pound depot on Madiba Street. According to IPID spokesperson Grace Langa, the perpetrators chose not to come forward, and investigators were unable to identify the eight policemen allegedly engaged in the attack despite a visit to their workplace. Langa previously stated that IPID had contacted with the depot's commander to get a record of metro cops on patrol on the day of the event.

It was previously reported that metro cops reportedly assaulted three men who went to the CBD pound to recover their automobiles on October 2. When the guys arrived, the entrance to the pound was shut, and security at the depot refused them admission, according to Langa. Before returning to the office, a metro cop came outside to speak with the males. Then, reportedly, eight metro cops "appeared out of nowhere" and "immediately started sjamboking and beating" the three males. Following the event, the three guys allegedly went to the hospital for treatment. Langa stated that IPID was alerted of the event this week after the police ministry filed a report.

"When we were informed of these allegations, we immediately instructed our internal affairs unit that deals with the conduct of members to investigate this matter further and to determine a possibility of an internal disciplinary process," TMPD spokesperson explained.

She also stated that the situation was being looked into. Arrests were anticipated to be made next week after they obtained testimonies from the metro cops allegedly engaged in the event, she added. A case of assault with the intent to cause great bodily injury had also been opened. Meanwhile, the TMPD had begun an inquiry. He also stated that the department will fully assist with IPID in its probe.
