sapsTimesLIVE reports that the KwaZulu-Natal (KZN) government has condemned the brutal murders of two police officers in Pietermaritzburg, saying the latest attack showed that officers remained the targets of criminals.  

MEC Kwazi Mshengu appealed to investigators to leave no stone unturned in the search for the men behind the execution-style murders of police sergeants Makhosaze Mdlangathi and Mfikelwa Mtolo.  The off-duty officers, who were in a relationship, were apparently driving to Mtolo’s homestead on Saturday night when unknown suspects ambushed them at Taylor’s Halt near Pietermaritzburg. About 30 pistol and rifle cartridges were found on the scene, and the couple had multiple gunshot wounds in their bodies. Their firearms were not found at the scene. The murders came days after another police officer was shot and killed while protecting a gender-based violence victim. The motive for the latest killings is presently unknown and no arrests have been made.
