National Police Commissioner Khehla Sitole says he’s unable to suspend or take any other action against the officer who is said to have been involved in the shooting of Samantha Radebe.
The Independent Police Investigative Directorate (IPID) confirmed Radebe was killed by a police bullet.
“The moment there is an incident we immediately open an internal investigation. But if it’s a matter handled by IPID or the Public Protector…we then wait for a factual report from the investigation institution. After they have given the factual report, I am then able to make a decision whether the outcome of that investigation, does it warrant that we should suspend a member…,” said Sitole.
Radebe was caught in a crossfire between the police and suspects. Another person was critically wounded during the incident.
