IMATU expresses grief and outrage at killing of Traffic Officer in roadblock near Khayalitsha

It is with great sadness that we report the death of one of our members in the City of Cape Town, who was tragically killed whilst executing his duties at a roadblock on Friday 7 August 2020.

We convey our sincere condolences to his family and friends. It is indeed both a tragedy and an outrage that our members who selflessly work day after day to protect the lives and safety of others, themselves fall victim to the most atrocious type of violence.  We understand that a suspect has been apprehended and we trust that justice will be meted out swiftly.
