A video has been trending on social media of a man showing his wounds on the back and allegedly claimed that he was assaulted by the police with a Sjambok.
According to the South African daily news report, on 15 October 2021 eleven TMPD officers were arrested for allegedly being involved in the assault of the man pictured above and two other men, it's said that the reason why the assault occurred was because these individuals wanted to forcefully remove their vehicle after it was impounded by TMPD officers on 02 October 2021.
The TMPD officers pulled out Sjamboks and started assaulting the men which was an inappropriate conduct and abuse of power coming from law officials, hopefully they will never serve as police officers ever again because they are a threat to people due to the fact that they do not have the discipline to control themselves.
The 11 TMPD officers are currently in jail and will soon be appearing in court to face charges of assault.
