THE task team in­ves­ti­gat­ing the mur­der of a po­lice­man on Wed­nes­day last week, have ar­rested two sus­pects.

De­tec­tive Con­sta­ble Mzwandile Sa­belo Mavundla (36) and his col­leagues were fol­low­ing up on a rob­bery com­plaint in the Maqongo area near Mbon­gol­wane, when they came un­der at­tack.

The sus­pected rob­bers opened fire on the police van, fa­tally wound­ing Mavundla.

Const Mavundla was hit in his right thigh and lost con­trol of the ve­hi­cle, which left the road.

Sgt Zin­c­ume man­aged to run away to find help at a neigh­bour­ing homestead.

When the sus­pects saw the van had stopped, they ap­proached it, dis­armed the de­ceased and ran away on foot.
