Police say there is an additional budget to prioritize DNA processing. Some families in KwaZulu Natal say they were unable to bury their relatives due to untreated at the SAPS Forensic Institute.
The Ngcobo family in Hammersdale, a suburb of Durban, awaited a clear identification of the burnt bodies they believed belonged to the family member Nomvuselelo Ngcobo, which was discovered last year.
Brenda Muridiri, a spokesperson for the National Police, said: Next, we received an additional 250 million rants allocated to the baseline budget to prioritize DNA processing, including NPA priority cases. We also allocated a forensic laboratory to process the DNA backlog, and a dedicated overtime of R18.5 million allocated for manual tracking and tracking of exhibits. “
