JOHANNESBURG - The Democratic Alliance launched a dedicated Whatsapp number and email line for members of the public to report members of law enforcement and the SANDF for misconduct.
They said they would advise citizens on their legal rights and lodge complaints about abuse to the relevant authorities.
"The WhatsApp number and email will be monitored by a task team of DA MPs that form part of the security and justice clusters in Parliament.
"They are experts in their fields and will be able to provide expert advice to the public," interim leader John Steenhuisen said.
The DA urged South Africans to adhere to the regulations of the national 21-day lockdown and said those who do not comply should face the consequences within the law.
