The Gauteng MEC for Community Safety, Sizakele Nkosi-Malobane, has expressed shock and dismay following an attack on a Gauteng Traffic Police officer and the brutal killing of her husband at their residence in Struitsbult, Ekurhuleni on Friday.
Traffic Officer Moletsi was shot in the foot and taken to hospital. Her husband was shot in the chest, head and died on scene. The motive for the killing is unknown and police are investigating a case of murder and attempted murder.
“This barbaric act happens in the backdrop of a commemoration of selfless and dedicated traffic officers who died in the line of duty about two weeks ago. An attack on law enforcement officers by callous criminals is an attack on the state.
“I have instructed the police to work around the clock and leave no stone unturned to ensure that perpetrators of this heinous crime are arrested swiftly.
“I call upon community members to play an active role in the fight against the killings of law enforcement officers. Our thoughts and prayers are with the Moletsi family during these trying times,” said MEC Nkosi-Malobane.
