Policeman killed at Mbongolwane
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.
