Johannesburg - A police officer has appeared in the Prince Albert Magistrate's Court in connection with the shooting and wounding of a colleague, say Western Cape police.

Spokesperson Bernadine Steyn said the case had been postponed the matter to January 19 next year for further investigation.

Constable Graham Wicomb would remain in custody until his next appearance.

Wicomb was arrested for allegedly shooting a 25-year-old woman police constable at a hostel in Leeu-Gamka in the Western Cape on December 2.

Steyn said the woman had parked her car around 23:00 when 26-year-old Wicomb arrived and parked next to her.

He allegedly drew his service pistol, walked over to her and shot her as she sat in the car.

She was admitted to a local hospital and discharged later.

Both officers were stationed at the Leeu-Gamka police station.

The motive for the shooting was not known.

    WHEN I WAS AT SCHOOL I READ ANIMAL FARM. I DID NOT UNDERSTAND THE BOOK THEN. BUT NOW I HAVE WITNESSED THE BOOK COMING TO LIFE TWICE IN A SPACE OF 20 YEARS. THE UNCLE BOB'S SHOW AND MZANSI CIRCUS ARE A TRUE EXAMPLE OF HOW BLIND THE MZANSI POLITICIANS ARE TO THE ZIMBABWEAN POLITICS. PERSONALY I BELIEVE THAT PRAISE SINGERS MUST NOT BE ALLOWED IN TODAY POLITICS AS THEY BRAINWASH OUR CHILDREN.FOUR LEGS GOOD,TWO LEGS BETTER!!! THAT IS MALEMA FOR YOU. AS FOR ME I SAY FOUR LEGS GOOD ,FOUR LEGS BETTER!!!!!ANIMAL FARM WAS AND IS FOR ANIMALS-COLLECTIVELY. IN ZIM OUR FATHERS FOUGHT FOR A ONE MAN ONE VOTE SYSTEM NOT FOR ADICTATORSHIP. I SAY, "LET'S DO AWAY WITH PRAISE SINGERRS WHO DO NOT UNDERSTAND BASIC POLITICS BUT CAN FORCE YOU TO COMPLY WITH THE OPPRESSOR'S IDEOLOGIES.
