The High Court in Pretoria has ruled that all officers implicated in the killing of Alexandra resident Collins Khosa last month during a lockdown operation in the township should be placed on suspension.
His family took the matter to court.
Judge Hans Fabricius, in handing down judgment, called for the publishing of a range of guidelines to inform how law enforcement officials should implement lockdown compliance.
This code of conduct must be widely published in all official languages across all media platforms, ordered the court.
A hotline has been ordered to be set up so that the public can report cases.
