The Acting Provincial Commissioner for KwaZulu-Natal, Lieutenant General Nhlanhla Mkhwanazi has condemned the latest killing of a Kwazulu-Natal police officer.

“We are angered and disturbed by the news that a Sergeant from Mandeni Police Station was killed by her partner whilst she was off duty.

We extended our deepest condolences to her family and colleagues who are understandably still shocked. Our Employee Health and Wellness officials will render the necessary support to them during this unfortunate period,” he said.
