'It is within the rights of the military to have their own disciplinary hearing'
Members of the South African National Defense Force (SANDF) that have been accused of killing Alexandra resident Collins Khosa have been cleared by an SANDF internal inquiry.
The findings attached to an affidavit filed in the High Court in Pretoria states that Khosa’s injuries were not linked to his death.
Khosa’s family stated in their affidavit that SANDF members dragged him from his yard to the street and allegedly assaulted him.
