Vendor in court for metro cop death

A street vendor accused of killing a metro policeman is expected to appear in the Benoni Magistrate’s Court today.

The man’s second court appearance was on Wednesday when he was supposed to make a bail application.

A 48-year-old metro policeman was killed in Daveyton on Sunday.

At the time, Ekurhuleni metro police spokesman Chief Superintendent Wilfred Kgasago said the officer had been enforcing by-laws when he was punched.

A businessman had allegedly been operating a food stall in an unauthorised area.

Officers were towing his caravan away when the officer was hit. He fell and hit his head, and died on the scene.
