National Commemoration Day 2019 #FinalSalute To the late Constable SM Buthelezi, for the oath you took, your bravery and protection we say, thank you.

In loving memory of a fallen hero, the SAPS found it fitting to engrave your name

on the national memorial wall situated at the Union Buildings, to signify the gratitude of the nation.

The late Constable SM Buthelezi was 36 years of age, and was stationed at the Ntuzuma Police Station, in KwaZulu-Natal.

The late, dedicated member served loyally for six years, risking his life to protect his community in an endeavour to make it a crime-free environment that is conducive to social and economic stability, in support of a better life for all.

The late Constable Buthelezi's

life that he dedicated to the safety of the public, was cut short by a criminal that ignored the pain his loved ones feel, now that he is gone.

It was on 24 August 2018 when the late member and his colleagues responded to an armed robbery complaint along Malandela Road at Kwa-Mashu.

The team moved tactically to protect and serve, but were ambushed by criminals who shot at the late Constable Buthelezi and his colleague who survived the attack.

Sadly, the late Constable Buthelezi was fatally wounded.

The late member left behind three children with the youngest being only two years old at the time of his death.

His family and the community he swore to protect, lost a father and a hero who was dearly loved.

To the late Constable SM Buthelezi, the SAPS's management salutes your bravery, loyalty and sacrifices to serve and protect - no longer with us, but never forgotten.
