Johannesburg - The Cape Law Society has condemned the killing of police officers in the Western Cape.

"All must condemn the killing of [SA Police Service] members, our only bastion against anarchy, and our government must take all legal steps to stop the attacks on our men in blue," the CLS said in a statement on Tuesday.

Earlier, Western Cape police said another policeman had been shot dead at his home in Cape Town, in the third police killing in the city since Sunday.

Colonel Tembinkosi Kinana said the 34-year-old sergeant was shot dead on Monday night at his home in Montclaire, Mitchells Plain.

He said two men knocked on the door, and when his wife opened the door, they asked for the policeman.

"The suspects fired several shots at him and he died at the scene. It is alleged that the suspects entered the house and demanded a safe in which there was a firearm. Thereafter, they fled the scene on foot."

The policeman was stationed in Philippi East. He was married with a 5-year-old daughter.

No arrests had been made.
