R100 000 reward for information leading to Cop killer’s arrest

The City is offering R100 000 to anyone who has substantive information about the shooting which transpired this morning, during which, one of our JMPD officers was shot in the head.
Ensuring the safety of our officials, and especially our JMPD officers, is my number one priority. In the pursuit of keeping the residents of Johannesburg safe, I must first and foremost ensure my law enforcement officials are safe when conducting their work. This is why we are offering this reward, and by doing so, I someone will come forward with information which will lead to arrest of the suspect(s).
MMC for Public Safety, Cllr Michael Sun, Chief of JMPD, David Tembe, and Speaker of Council, Cllr Vasco Da Gama, visited Milpark Hospital to see the officer, along with his wife and brother.
JMPD commended him for his bravery and thanked him for going beyond the call of duty to try and uphold the rule of law.
The City is saddened and angered that this attack follows just a week after an EMS ambulance was assaulted with a brick while tending to a maternity emergency. It is also two weeks after two of our officers tragically died when a drunk driver drove into them while they were on duty at a road block.
This criminal behaviour must be condemned in the strongest possible terms and this culture of lawlessness must end.
