The Hawks are on the hunt for a 38-year-old man in connection with the murder of a police officer.

The Serious Organised Crime Investigation Unit is seeking assistance from members of the public in tracing Thulani Roxo after 29-year-old Sergeant Nontombi Hope Manie was stabbed to death on March 2, 2019.

Manie was attached to Kuruman SAPS.

"At the time of the tragedy, she was attending a social gathering at Surrender Hill, Fouriesburg District, when a fight broke out.

"She was reportedly stabbed in the neck with a sword and died on the scene," spokesperson Lynda Steyn said in a statement on Thursday.

Roxo is believed to be from Kuruman, in the Northern Cape, with ties in the Transkei, Port Elizabeth and East London.
