The ANC Commends Law- Enforcement Agencies for arresting suspects for Constable Rankoe's Death

MA Molekwa

The ANC commends the law enforcement agencies for the sterling work in swiftly arresting suspects linked to the fatal shooting of Constable Mokgophe Rankoe. Constable Rankoe was shot and killed in Braamfischerville, Soweto.' The speedy arrest of the suspects came after a responsive integration of the multi-disciplinary team by Gauteng law enforcement agencies who swiftly traced and apprehended the two suspects. Thus far there are three suspects apprehended for the crime and one was wounded during the shooting.

The continuous and unending killings of the police is a huge concern. As citizens we must provide greater support to the police and assist them with information to help end this attack on our police force. Our government is committed to combating attacks on the members of the SAPS, with measures that include harsher punishments and legislation in order to protect law enforcement officials in the execution of their duties.

I thank you
