No arrests after CPT cop murder
No one has been arrested yet in connection with the murder of a Mitchells Plain policeman.
CAPE TOWN - Western Cape police said on Monday no arrests have yet been made in connection with the murder of a 29-year-old Mitchells Plain policeman.
The constable was gunned down in Tafelsig on Sunday morning during an argument with an acquaintance. He was off-duty at the time.
The Western Cape Community Police Forum (CPF)'s Hanif Loonat said, "We cannot accept such action taken against our police officers. We need to come up with a holistic plan in avoiding such recurrence. Community members are called to please inform us and report the perpetrators."
Loonat said if police "become vulnerable" then community members are also at risk.
The victim is the second South African Police Service (SAPS) member to have been killed in the Western Cape over the last week.
On Tuesday, a 30-year-old officer was shot dead in Lwandle on his way home.
Two men were later arrested in connection with the murder.
On Friday, the Police Portfolio Committee described police killings as a direct attack on the state.
