Johannesburg – No arrests have yet been made following the murder of a police officer in Soweto earlier this week, Gauteng police said on Wednesday.

"The suspects are still at large and police are investigating a case of murder, attempted murder, and theft of a police firearm," provincial commissioner Lieutenant General Deliwe de Lange said.

She condemned the killing of police officers and vowed to ensure the killers were arrested.

On Monday evening, a 33-year-old constable and a colleague stopped a VW Polo with six occupants in Kliptown, Soweto. The occupants opened fire, killing the constable, spokesperson Brigadier Mathapelo Peters said. They stole his firearm.

The other officer was unhurt.

Anyone with information about the murder should call Crime Stop on 08600 10111 or their nearest police station.
