JOHANNESBURG- Police Minister Fikile Mbalula has condemned the armed robbery of an ambulance in Cape Town which is believed to have contributed to the death of a child.

Earlier this week, unknown assailants forced the emergency vehicle off the road while it was transporting 8 year-old Faigun Wildschut to the hospital.

The Red Cross Children's Hospital later confirmed Faigan had died.

Police ministry spokesperson Vuyo Mhaga said, “Mr Mbalula condemns the barbaric act and we send our condolences to the family.”
