 Western Cape police have confirmed that two people have been arrested following the murder of an off-duty police officer on Wednesday morning in Lwandle near Strand.

Police Spokesperson Andre Traut said the circumstances surrounding the murder are being investigated.  The motive for the killing is still unknown at this stage. 

Traut said the two suspects aged 30 and 36-years respectively will appear in court after they have been charged.

Meanwhile MEC of Community Safety Dan Plato said any acts of violence against hard working police officers who provide a valuable safety service to the public must be condemned in the strongest possible manner. 

Ministerial Spokesperson Greg Wagner said MEC Dan Plato emphasised that an attack on the police is an attack on the state and this is completely unacceptable.

Wagner said MEC Plato has welcomed the arrest of the two suspects.
