Siyathola ukuthi eMozambique kulo Ibraimo Mbaruco, osesiyakwanisa 19-months wacatsha kodwa asizwa lutho olukhulunywa ngaye. lamapholisa aphendla indaba yankhona abatsho lutho. E-Tanzania kulendaba ka Azory Gwanda, osekwanise iminyaka emine, engaziwa ukuthi waqondaphi. Ngo 2019, ilizwe lathi hayi, kutsho ukuthi sewafa kodwa lalamuhlanje asikaboni isidumbu sakhe and abantu kabaphendli amapholisa ukuthi bephendle ukuthi kanti kwenzakalani ngempilo yakhe”

Njalo lisinika ithuba elokuthi sikhangele ukuthi ingxoxo esesike saba lazo lamapholisa, sesingaphi ngazo?. Sesilesikhathi sikhuluma lesikhulumeli samapholisa uAssistant Commissioner Paul Nyathi, laye uyathembisa sibili ukuthi uzalungisisa udaba lolu ngoba sesilentathelizindaba ezinengi kakhulu ezitshaywayo lezibotshwayo.”

UMunhende uthi ufisa ngabe ziyahlolisiswa izehlakalo zokuhlukunyezwa kwentathelizindaba ikakhulu ezandleni zabomthetho.

“Kumaviki la amabili la adluleyo kumbe sokubotshwe intathelizindaba ezingafika ezinhlanu sibili. So, sithemba ukuthi ilanga elinje, lingenza ukuthi laye uhulumende lengatsha zakhe, zingabona ukuthi into abazenzayo, azilunganga njalo sekuyisikhathi esokuthi beqale ukubopha lokubophisa wonke ongahloniphi ikakhulu amalungelo entathelizindaba. Ngingakhohlwa kumbe ngingadeleli abanye abala malungelo abo.”
