Cops edging closer to justice for slain Kraaifontein officers

Crime scene

Police are edging closer to finding justice for two officers who were murdered in Kraaifontein outside Cape Town last weekend.

Sergeant Mnakwazo Mdoko and Constable Mninawa Breakfast were killed and robbed of their official firearms while patrolling in Bloekombos, in the early hours of Saturday morning.

On Friday police released a statement confirming that they have since recovered the officers’ firearms in Khayelitsha.

On Thursday night, an intelligence-led police operation resulted in the arrest of nine suspects for the possession of unlicensed firearms in Khayelitsha. Two of the firearms found have been positively identified to belong to the slain police members,” reads the police’s statement.

Minister Cele has lauded the work of all the units involved in the latest developments.

“This breakthrough as a result of combined efforts of DPCI together with Crime Intelligence, Flying Squad, and the Tactical Response teams is paying off and I am encouraged that the SAPS in the province has taken up the call to find the police killers dead or alive.”

Cele believes the crackdown on these suspects also means fewer illegal firearms are on the streets of Cape Town, which are in many cases, used to commit violent crimes.

A total of seven police officers have been killed in the past 15 days.
