Police Minister Bheki Cele says there is an urgent need to protect the police against attacks by criminals.
Cele was speaking outside the home of the late sergeant Thabile Mapoma in Khayelitsha on the Cape Flats.
43-year old Mapoma was shot dead outside his driveway on Thursday.
Cele says police work is not
easy and they too need protection.
He's called on the community to condemn continuing police killings, especially in the Western Cape."https://scontent-jnb1-1.xx.fbcdn.net/v/t1.0-0/p417x417/119914657_3551049474947411_3247526439152091326_n.jpg?_nc_cat=105&_nc_sid=110474&_nc_ohc=lZQHo_YUKvgAX_Qgmr1&_nc_ht=scontent-jnb1-1.xx&tp=6&oh=d9bceed07372b570f5781ae1b5eb337e&oe=5F8DD72A","https://scontent-jnb1-1.xx.fbcdn.net/v/t1.0-0/p261x260/119930388_3551049568280735_2973753103272968923_n.jpg?_nc_cat=100&_nc_sid=110474&_nc_ohc=0KF5Tpu4_8wAX9vUh7J&_nc_ht=scontent-jnb1-1.xx&tp=6&oh=7b67a1a8cfdb4ec3f343497306e0459f&oe=5F8B5D49","https://scontent-jnb1-1.xx.fbcdn.net/v/t1.0-0/p261x260/119807245_3551049648280727_4325244434124339160_n.jpg?_nc_cat=105&_nc_sid=110474&_nc_ohc=A_w9-B8q-t4AX-_ViCN&_nc_oc=AQlrIib2ChPPmJwiQq7uWCpEJyVyBAi0mb36Ne0OQ3_wZVkBeaxHj2zxrQ4jbYayCE4&_nc_ht=scontent-jnb1-1.xx&tp=6&oh=416c9369d45f952b017a843c57112f0c&oe=5F8BF717"
