By Khanyisa Tabata
North West MEC for Public Safety, Howard Yawa, has commended the arrest of a Lehurutse policeman who has been accused of kidnapping and murdering a suspect related to stock theft.
It has been alleged that Taffa was summoned to the police station by Constable Motswiri for questioning on a case related to stock theft. He was the last person to be seen with the deceased.
Investigations by police have established that the deceased had at one stage complained that the suspect had slashed the tyres of his car.
Yawa has assured Taffa’s family and community that justice will be done if the police officer is found guilty.
Constable Motswiri is expected to make his second appearance at the Lehurutse Magistrate Court today, for bail application.
