Two CT cops murdered
Two Saps officials were shot and killed in separate incidents at the weekend.
CAPE TOWN - Two police officers were killed at the weekend in Khayelitsha.
The officials were attacked and gunned down in two separate incidents on Sunday night.
One of them was attending to an accident scene while the other was killed while waiting to go to work.
The exact circumstances surrounding the incidents are still being investigated.
Western Cape Police Commissioner Arno Lamoer said, "We received a call that one of the police officers was busy with an accident when he was shot and killed. The suspect ran away but didn't take his firearm. Within an hour another police officer was shot."
Last week a police officer was killed and another wounded, also in a shooting, in Nyanga.
The number of South African Police Service (Saps) members who have been shot and killed in the Western Cape in the last five weeks is now six.
On 25 June, 35-year-old sergeant, Mthunzi Mbonjwa was killed in Mfuleni. Mbonjwa was off duty at the time of the incident.
Police arrested a number of suspects in connection with the crime a few weeks later.
Just a day after the attack on Mbonjwa, 30-year-old Constable Thabo Mdzwana who was on standby duty, was shot dead in Lwandle in the Strand.
A few days later, off-duty constable Brandon Mpoe (29) was shot dead in Mitchells Plain, allegedly after an argument with an acquaintance.
