Continued Killing of Police Personnel
20 June 1996
COSATU PRESS STATEMENT
COSATU has learnt with shock the killing of Sergeant S.M. Khosa who was on duty last night at a contact point in Siluma at Katlehong and was found dead with a bullet wound on his head.
The person responsible for this brutal attack can only be a crazy criminal who hope to intimidate police out of Katlehong so that he and other criminals can have a free reign in their criminal activities.
COSATU calls on the community and a possible witness to come forward with information so that the criminal can be arrested.
COSATU welcomes and support the recent announcements by the Cabinet and Commissioner George Fivas. We hope that these strategies will seek to achieve two fundamental points, which are ;
1. To restore trust on the law enforcement agents. 2. To restore credibility on the justice system.
If the citizens of South Africa continue to view both the police and justice in the negative light, we may as well kiss security and safety in our streets and homes good bye.
We hope that the Miscommunication between Ministries of justice and Correctional Services with the National Commissioner will be resolved before the whole credibility of strategies announced begin to be questioned.
