Herman Mashaba: South Africa is paying the price for total lawlessness

Johannesburg Mayor Herman Mashaba says South Africa is paying the price for total lawlessness over many years because the political leadership did everything in their power to destroy the rule of law.

Mashaba was responding to the sad news of a Metro officer who was shot dead in broad daylight in notorious Hillbrow.

The City of Johannesburg is turned into a slum in a matter of 20 years by allowing people to come in and do as they please.

Herman Mashaba, Joburg Mayor

This is a result of national leadership concentrating all their energy on looting the country instead of serving our people.

Herman Mashaba, Joburg Mayor

Mashaba says three suspects were arrested within a few hours after the incident and three guns were recovered.

Police officers are the first defence to protect society so if you kill a police officer you are killing the society. For us to be able to protect our society we have to protect our officers.

Herman Mashaba, Joburg Mayor
