KZN cop shoots teen after accident

2012-08-17 11:19

Durban - A police constable accused of killing a teenager has been released on bail of R1 000 by the Pietermaritzburg Regional Court, the Witness reported on Friday.

Constable Hlengiwe Mkhize, 31, allegedly shot dead Mindeli Ngcobo, 15, after he accidentally hit her car on Bulwer Road, just outside Pietermaritzburg, on July 7.

The State alleges that Ngcobo and Mkhize agreed to go to a police station to report the accident, but that Mkhize fired two shots at Ngcobo as he drove away.

Ngcobo's sisters and a 1-year-old child were in the car at the time. He did not have a driver's licence.

Mkhize opened a case alleging that Ngcobo had tried to hijack her vehicle and that she had shot him in self-defence.

    So he's in his car, and driving away...and wants to hijack her car? Was it a police car? Or her private car? If so, was she on duty? If not, why carry her service pistol? Weird story if you ask me...

    Since when is it legal for a 15 year old to be driving?

      jason.slabber.3 - 2012-08-17 11:54

      What I actually meant to ask is, a underaged, unlicensed driver hits into a cop car, and then after a conversation with the officer, is requested to drive back to the cop shop....HUH??? Why wasnt he arrested on the spot, in any other civilized country, thats what would have happened

      Is that a reason to shoot him? I am saying it again. The most dangerous criminals are the police, because their guns are issued to them. This one must go to jail for a very long time.

    Now this is a police action that should not be tolerated this person should not be out on bail R1000.00 for straight out murder DISGUSTING. The Judge should be charged for Aiding a murderer.
