CAPE TOWN - Three men have now been arrested in connection with the murder of Cape Town police officer Amanda Ladlokova.

The mother of three was shot dead while responding to a complaint in Philippi East nearly three weeks ago.

Thabo Nohashe and Bronwen Qongqo were arrested in Philippi and Mitchells Plain over the weekend.

They will join 19-year-old Ashwin Kennedy in the dock next month.

Hawks spokesperson Lloyd Ramovha says, "The three suspects are expected to appear in the Athlone Magistrates Court on 3 January for a bail application."

Five police officers have been murdered in separate incidents in Cape Town over the past three weeks.
