Alleged Free State cop killers in court

2013-01-17 08:17

Johannesburg - The two men accused of killing a Free State policeman during an armed robbery will apply for bail in the Bloemfontein Magistrate's Court on Thursday.

The men, aged 19 and 28, were allegedly part of a four-man gang which robbed a shop in Kopanong last week. When they tried to flee, the police arrived, and the gang ran back into the shop.

They came out shooting, hitting police Sergeant Molahlehi Ephraim Mokhasi, 41. He died on the scene.

The gang fled, but were soon confronted by other officers and the Bloemfontein dog unit. Two officers were wounded - one in the hand and leg, and the other in the hand - in the ensuing shoot-out.

One of the gang members was killed and another arrested. The following day the second suspect was arrested.

The two face charges of murder, attempted murder, and armed robbery.

    The wild wild west! No law and order! Where is our Minister of non policing! Will these thugs escape, or walk out of the courts or get an advocate to fight for his "human rights"? No rights for victims in our country - we are there for the killing!
