In EWN news today, we heard that yet another police officer was shot and killed in Temba, this time in Temba, north of Pretoria. This murder brings to 3 the number of officers murdered in the country in just 24 hours.
Camilla Bath (in for Stephen Grootes) speaks to SAPS spokesperson, Vish Naidoo, who raises the alarm on the number of police officers that have already been killed in this year so far.
This year alone, 28 off duty officers and 24 on duty officers have been murdered. This is an alarming figure and is unacceptable. When we lose our police officers it sends a wave of depression through the corridors of any police station.— Vish Naidoo, National spokesperson, SAPS
Naidoo appeals to the community to assist in bringing down this number of killings and attacks on police officers.
