A woman was assaulted by private security guards at a Shoprite store in Cosmo City, north-west of Johannesburg.
Her 3-year-old daughter relieved herself in the store. The guards then assaulted the woman and handcuffed her.
A video of the incident went viral.
Gauteng Community Safety MEC, Sizakele Nkosi-Malobane, visited the Shoprite store yesterday and she expressed her anger at the actions of the security guards.
“GDCS MEC Nkosi-Malobane is very livid about the treatment meted out against Thandi Chiparadza at U Save Shoprite South Africa Cosmo City,”
the Community Safety Department tweeted.
The actions of the security guards are not more than criminal. They are a disgrace and they must arrested and charged.
The store should also act with urgency and apologize for the incident.
I’m sure the incident has left the woman and her child traumatized. I hope she also takes civil action against the security guards and the store.
