Institute of Security Studies policing expert, Dr Johan Burger, agreed with Batohi.“Three weeks ago the Hawks head Lt-Gen Godfrey Lebeya gave the police portfolio committee a briefing where he listed the Hawks’ shortcomings.  One of the things he raised was the unit’s lack of capacity.”

Burger said for years specialist crime fighting units like the Hawks had been deliberately hollowed out.“The Hawks have insufficient experienced investigators. The former Hawks head, Berning Ntlemeza, was part of the state capture problem and used to ensure the protection of Jacob Zuma.

“Ntlemeza hollowed out the Hawks by either directly removing highly capable detectives or driving away experienced officers by making it unbearable to work within the unit.”He said while attempts are being made to rebuild it, it was a time-consuming process. headtopics.com

Stellenbosch University policing and conflict expert, Professor Guy Lamb, said it was clear the police had been caught completely unaware by what had happened.“What is needed to make a dent in this case is to get those who co-ordinated the attacks. At the moment it appears the police are going for the visible people who were driving the looting via voicenotes.

“To get the masterminds requires extensive policing skills and above all else sound intelligence and extensive informer networks. For the police it now does not look good.”Lamb said the Hawks had previously focused on more traditional investigations having never had to deal with violent opposition.

“The types of cases that the Crimes Against the State Unit have investigated, such as the Boeremag and the Thulsie Twins, are small-scale compared to what has happened here.“This is far more complex and draws on a dissatisfied sentiment with political links to the ruling party. Something like this has not featured in the Hawks threat matrix before.”

He said the crisis showed the urgent need for restructuring and reforms of law enforcement, especially as inequality and poverty were being weaponised by non-state groups to engage in economic sabotage, unrest and destabilisation.“While intelligence gathering has been focused on criminal groups, it must be refocused to also deal with violence driven by political factionalism spilling over into society. The State’s law enforcement agencies must adapt to deal with this.” headtopics.com

Just nobodies.. with big mouths but could not have planned anything.. they probably dont even know each other Who ordered that they be arrested? These people must sue the state.
