Police Commissioner Khehla Sitole says the July looting and civil unrest seen in parts of the country highlighted the crisis SAPS is facing which is the lack of resources.

The South African Human Rights Commission (SAHRC) is continuing with hearing evidence about what transpired in KZN and Gauteng in the fateful week that saw civilians go on a rampage looting, burning and destroying infrastructure.

The SAHRC is trying to determine what led to the events that resulted in the death of over 300 people.

Last week the commission heard from several witnesses and victims of the violence.

On SAPS response to the violence, Sitole says this highlighted the deeply rooted problems they are facing.
