So, someone can be deliberately killed in “crossfire”! The “crossfire” killings, understood to be a blatant violation of all human rights laws, have been termed by an MP an “instant action” when it comes to dealing with criminals.
The greatest gift that a government can earn for itself is the trust of the general public. And the best way to do so is to be transparent on matters of grave public concern and come clean on any policy failures.
The minister for home would have us believe that the crossfire deaths that have occurred in the government's pursuit to combat the menace of drugs and narcotics are not due to crossfire but occurred when the law enforcing agencies fired in self-defence only, in pursuit of the drug dealers.
