Community Safety MEC Albert Fritz said that his department was still reeling from the loss of their colleague, Mpontsana. He's appealed to the public to come forward with information so that her killer can be put behind bars.

She was murdered, allegedly by her partner, during an argument last month.

Mpontsana was responsible for inspecting police stations, checking whether they adequately helped victims of gender-based violence. She was first hired in 2005.
