Alleged police killer to appear in court
Cape Town - A Western Cape man will appear in court on Friday for allegedly killing two policemen earlier in the week, said Hawks spokesperson McIntosh Polela.
He said information about the arrest had not been made public during the investigation into the killings of Warrant Officer Girshwin Matthee and Student Constable Cannon Cloete.
They were murdered while attending to a crime call in Kraaifontein on Sunday.
The man would appear in the Blue Downs Magistrate's Court, said Polela.
In a separate statement, Western Cape police spokesperson Colonel Andre Traut said investigations led members of the Hawks to Grootte Schuur Hospital on May 24, where a Khayelitsha man was being treated for a gunshot wound.
The circumstances surrounding his injury were still under investigation.
Evidence suggested he was involved in the attack.
At least 32 police officers have been killed since January this year.
