People must be protected, not abused, as the authorities enforce the law and "protect South Africans against the invisible enemy that is Covid-19", City of Johannesburg Mayor Geoffrey Makhubo said on Tuesday.
This after he met with the family of Collins Khoza who was allegedly killed by members of the SA National Defence Force (SANDF) on Good Friday.
He was reportedly accused of violating lockdown regulations after three soldiers noticed a camp chair and half-full cup of liquor on his friend's property.
On Tuesday, Makhubo visited Khoza's widow and family in Alexandra.
