The death of Vilikesa Soko, who was in police custody when he was taken to hospital with internal bleeding, will be the first real test of our new Compol Groenewald. He’s shown he can wear the uniform and say all the right things. Now let’s see if he can enforce the law without fear or favour. Radio Regime claims Groenewald said Soko had refused medical treatment before he died. That’s not the issue. The question is how did he get the injuries? Will Groenewald just accept whatever BS is served up, as with the torture video? This death happened on his watch – he has to answer.
