Police Commissioner General Khehla John Sitole has directed the Provincial Commissioner of Gauteng, Lieutenant General Elias Mawela to implement a 72-hour activation plan to hunt down the criminals who killed an off-duty police officer in full view of motorists and passersby in Sandton.

It is understood Sergeant David Tsedu who was stationed at the City Deep Port of Entry, was driving along Katherine Street in Sandown when he was gunned down by a group of suspects on Thursday.

The suspects are alleged to have robbed Tsedu of his service pistol and other items before fleeing the scene in a getaway vehicle.

Tsedu was taken to a nearby hospital but sadly succumbed to his injuries upon arrival.

The police’s Athlenda Mathe says Sithole has condemned the attack and sent his condolences to the family, friends and colleagues of Sergeant Tsedu.

“The motive for the incident is the central focus of our investigation. We will not rest until those who are behind this brazen attack have been apprehended.”

Mathe has urged anyone with information that may lead to the arrest of the crime to contact police.
