'Mob justice' leaves two dead, one in hospital
Qalabusha residents have lost trust in police

In the past week alone, two separate incidents of “mob justice” have been reported in Qalabusha informal settlement in Daveyton, with two men confirmed dead while another is fighting for his life in a local hospital.
