WARNING – Video not for sensitive viewers


Johannesburg – Video footage of police arresting a Mozambican taxi driver for a parking violation in Daveyton and dragging him behind a police van following an altercation has gone viral, prompting a public outcry.

The taxi driver died in the police cells on Tuesday, the day of the incident.

The case is being investigated by the Independent Police Investigative Directorate (Ipid) – the police watchdog body – while the officers who allegedly committed the crime are still on duty.

“We have seen the video footage and we have obtained statements and have changed our inquest to murder,” Ipid spokesman Moses Dlamini said on Thursday.
