SENSELESS & SHAMELESS ACT AS TSHWANE’S PARAMEDICS WERE ROBBED WHILE ON DUTY...

The City of Tshwane is dismayed at the senseless and shameless robbing of three Tshwane Emergency Services paramedics at gunpoint while attending to a patient in the back of a City ambulance in Soshanguve (Block GG) over the weekend.

On Saturday, November 24 2018 in the early hours of the morning, two armed persons forced our paramedics to hand over their cash, cell phones and personal belongings before fleeing


the scene.

Fortunately, the paramedics sustained no injuries during the robbery. The incident was reported to the Phuthanong Police Station and a case was opened to search and apprehend these criminals.

"We strongly condemn this shameless and heartless attack on our members by persons who have no morals or empathy for the service our emergency personnel is


rendering in the interest of saving lives while risking their own", said Member of the Mayoral Committee responsible for Community Safety, Councillor Derrick Kissoonduth.

Members of the community are urged to expose these perpetrators - report them to the nearest South African Police Service or Tshwane Metro Police station - as this is not the first attack on our emergency personnel whilst on duty, MMC Kissoonduth added.
