A mass murder conviction rate of 0,7% proves Cele and Lamola should go

Minister Bheki Cele admitted in Parliament today that South Africa has only a 0,7% conviction rate for mass murder for the 2021/22 financial year. This confirms everything Action Society has been saying about his and the entire criminal justice system’s complete failure to execute its sole duty.

“It is no wonder we see a murder rate of 84 people per day; murderers know there will be no consequences for their brutal actions,” said Ian Cameron, Director of Community Safety at Action Society. “What will it take for Cele and his colleague Lamola to hang up their hats or for President Ramaphosa to give them the boot?”

“Cele’s admission of failure is a slap in the face of people like Siphokazi Booi – whose dismembered and burnt body was found in a bin in September 2021 – in whose murder case there is still no justice. Her case was postponed for the third time today. Will her murderer ever be convicted?”

Action Society will support the Mbekweni community at the Paarl Regional Court on Thursday when Siphokazi’s case resumes.

These statistics strengthen Action Society’s petition to remove Cele from his position. The petition is still active and has garnered more than 200 000 signatures.

“We urge South Africans to sign our petition so that we can start rebuilding the police force for the future and safety of the entire country,” said Cameron.
