The National Commissioner of Police General Khehla John Sitole, condemned the killing of two police officers in Gauteng last night. While condemning the killing, General Sitole ordered an unrelenting manhunt for those responsible.
At approximately 20:00 last night a Captain and a Warrant Officer responded to a hi-jacking complaint at Leonie Street, Winchester Hills, shortly after (the Captain) visited the Booysens Police Station as the duty officer.
Initial reports suggest the two members came under fire and they were both fatally wounded at Vleiroos Street while on their way to the complaint.
The hijacked vehicle has since been recovered in Klipspruit, Soweto. “We cannot rest until these killers have been found”, said General Sitole.
“While police are working around the clock to find these killers, we want to also appeal to anyone with information to please contact our Crime Stop number 086 00 10111”, added General Sitole.
