As videos surfaced on social media showing the police and soldiers allegedly abusing their power, the behavior of the South African Police Service (Saps) and the South African National Defence Force (SANDF) during the country's nationwide lockdown has come under scrutiny.
An Ekurhuleni metro police official and a security guard were arrested for murder and attempted murder following the killing of a man in Vosloorus.
Bongani Bingwa speaks to Saps national spokesperson brigadier Vish Naidoo to give a response on what has been happening.

Law enforcement officials need to treat communities with utmost respect when they are enforcing the regulations. Videos that are circulating are investigated and those involved will be dealt with.Brigadier Vish Naidoo, National spokesperson - Saps
