Callers on the open line discuss the SANDF internal inquiry into the death of Alexandra resident Collins Khosa.

An internal South African Defence Force (SANDF) inquiry has found that the death of Alexandra resident Collins Khosa was not caused by the soldiers.

The findings attached to an affidavit filed in the High Court in Pretoria states that Khosa’s injuries were not linked to his death.

Eusebius McKaiser dissects the findings of the inquiry.

RELATED: Court rules that SANDF officials involved in Alex man murder be suspended

They (SANDF) think that he provoked two women and as a result of that he was clapped then he died. That is the official finding of your SANDF, South Africa.

Eusebius McKaiser, Show host

They think that all that happened to this man was 'he was pushed, clapped' that is the language they used and ... mysteriously he was dead.

RELATED: Possible appeal of high court order leaves Khosa family 'distraught'

How on earth do you justify killing as a proportionate response to provocation? Even if there was a provocation, there is no way in hell mere pushing can result in blunt force trauma to a head which leads to haemorrhaging and then death. It is absolute BS.

Eusebius McKaiser, Show host

They didn't even interview the family. How could they not have interest in interviewing the family?

Callers had the following to say on the matter.

They gave those guys free rein to do anything. The primary job of a soldier is to take instruction, you can tell them not to assault people or kill people and if they can't take that instruction then they shouldn't wear that uniform.

James, Caller

The police can never be held accountable. It seems like there are two laws for civilians and laws fro policemen and soldiers.

Lehlohonolo, Caller
