July unrest warning signs
During the South African Human Rights Commission’s (SAHRC) investigative hearings into the July riots, Cele said last moth during his testimony he did not recall receiving any intelligence report on riots from police or the State Security Agency.
This despite signs of a looming unrest, which took over parts of KwaZulu-Natal and Gauteng, and left more than 300 people dead and billions in damages.
Justice and Correctional Services Minister Ronald Lamola said the warning signs of what was coming were all there, ahead of the jailing of former president Jacob Zuma last year.
