Police Minister Bheki Cele says it appears that police have failed Lieutenant-Colonel Charl Kinnear of the Western Cape.
However, he says investigations are on-going on why security measures were withdrawn from his house.
Kinnear, a senior investigator in the Anti Gang Unit, was gunned down near his Bishop Lavis home on the
Cape Flats yesterday.
He was involved in the investigation of several high profile cases.
Last year, 24-hour security was placed outside his home after he received death threats.
The security was withdrawn in December.
Cele has met with Kinnear's family in Bishop Lavis."https://scontent-jnb1-1.xx.fbcdn.net/v/t1.0-0/p526x296/119743293_3550818698303822_1891717161065093227_n.jpg?_nc_cat=100&_nc_sid=110474&_nc_ohc=YFi4Csd7_JUAX91m-mp&_nc_ht=scontent-jnb1-1.xx&tp=6&oh=b648eac8b9c4f15c7a2f2170b7dbd61e&oe=5F8DF88D","https://scontent-jnb1-1.xx.fbcdn.net/v/t1.0-0/p261x260/119930804_3550818798303812_4594807788444902770_n.jpg?_nc_cat=102&_nc_sid=110474&_nc_ohc=XthTN7iHaPgAX8-3405&_nc_ht=scontent-jnb1-1.xx&tp=6&oh=5b378a3b767f2f325270945051c16b36&oe=5F8BB394","https://scontent-jnb1-1.xx.fbcdn.net/v/t1.0-0/p261x260/119927200_3550818868303805_778673334432396206_n.jpg?_nc_cat=105&_nc_sid=110474&_nc_ohc=o9N5mMsfGkAAX9ffZzP&_nc_ht=scontent-jnb1-1.xx&tp=6&oh=5407a919d73e082a4ad885be425cdec3&oe=5F8AB29F"
