News24 reports that the 154-page report into the violence experienced in South Africa last July states that President Cyril Ramaphosa’s Cabinet should be held accountable for the unrest that claimed the lives of more than 360 people. According to the report, while the South African Police Service and State Security Agency failed spectacularly, a bad situation was made worse by completely inefficient, squabbling ministers. Things were so deficient that ministers did not even understand how precarious the situation was on the ground once the unrest began and when ministers got involved, it was not even clear whether they were acting on the instruction of the president or not. The report, in it’s conclusions, calls on the President to drive a national response plan that demonstrates its own willingness to be held accountable, and to hold the public office bearers who failed in their responsibilities to account.
