SAPS National Commemoration Day 2019 #FinalSalute for the late Sergeant SE Mtsewu.

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 Sergeant SE Mtsewu was 36-years-old when his life was cut short by criminals, for protecting the community he dearly loved against those who undermine the authority of the State.

On the fateful day of 15 February 2019, Sergeant Mtsewu was returning from a community imbizo at Cambridge Police Station in the Eastern Cape with his colleagues, when they saw members

of the community fighting.

The protector stopped, since two of the victims were under the attack of a knife-wielding man who was repeatedly stabbing them.

Sadly, Sergeant Mtsewu, who rushed to rescue the victims, was suddenly attacked and fatally stabbed in the midst of giving orders to the suspect to stop attacking the victims.

The painful part is that Sergeant Mtsewu left behind a wife and four children, with the youngest being only two-years-old.

Now his loved ones will grow without a father, because a criminal did not hesitate to end his life for protecting the vulnerable.

To the late Sergeant SE Mtsewu, the management of the SAPS salutes you for your bravery, loyalty and sacrifices to serve and protect - no longer with us, but you will never be forgotten.
