Fatal Dunoon shooting: Nando’s appoints forensic scientist to investigate
One woman died when police shot at a taxi transporting a group of Nando’s workers on Wednesday.
CAPE TOWN - Forensic scientist David Klatzow has been appointed by Nando's and its attorneys to investigate a shooting involving two Nando's staff members and police in Dunoon.
Police officers allegedly opened fire on a taxi in the area on Wednesday night as they believed the vehicle had been used in an ATM robbery.
The taxi was transporting a group of Nando's workers at the end of their shift when the shooting occurred.
One woman was killed, while another was wounded.
The matter has been handed over to police watchdog Independent Police Investigative Directorate.
Klatzow says it appears the directorate, together with the South African Police Service, have done very little to investigate this case so far.
"They have blocked our attempts and have been completely uncooperative with us; which is unacceptable. We want answers. To our knowledge, the people who did the shooting haven't even been suspended."
Meanwhile, Ipid's Robbie Raburabu says the investigation is at an early stage.
"We wouldn't say that he contacted us, but even if supposed to he was to contact us currently. All what we have done so far, we have attended the post-mortem as part of the investigation and we are still waiting on the police with regards to [a report on] the circumstances around the shooting."
