It is utterly appalling that yet another law enforcement officer has been murdered.
Yesterday metro police officer, Thembelani Khuboni, was murdered in cold blood outside his house in Soweto. Khuboni was robbed of his service pistol and left to die on the side of the road in a pool of blood.
It is unacceptable and distressing that the number of murders of police men and woman are on the increase and as a society we should not tolerate any attack on our cops.
The SAPS need to assign their best investigators to this case and bring the responsible transgressors to task. It is imperative that a precedent is set that any attack on law enforcement officers will be harshly dealt with and the perpetrators convicted and sentenced as a matter of urgency.
My sincere condolences go out to Khuboni’s wife and children in this time of unnecessary sadness.
