Video Of Nak3d Man Being Evicted Goes Viral. A video showing Cape Town officials violently removing a naked man from a shack in Khayelitsha has caused outrage among South Africans.
In the now-viral video that was shared on Wednesday, the man is seen being dragged out of his shack by law-enforcement officers.
He is seen wrestling with officials, before managing to re-enter his home, which, the city claimed, was on illegally occupied land belonging to the municipality.
The city’s executive director for safety and security, Richard Bosman, said an investigation and disciplinary procedures related to an incident were pending.
“We are in the process of suspending four staff members involved in the incident pending the outcome of the investigation. The suspension also ensures that staff is not targeted while on duty. We are saddened by the conduct depicted on the video footage, and we do not condone any forceful and dehumanising conduct by our staff members,” said Bosman.
Bosman said the city does not condone violence of any nature by law-enforcement staff.
