Mayoral Committee Member for Safety and Security JP Smith said he is pleased with the arrest of a man who allegedly shot and injured a City of Cape Traffic Officer. 

The 41-year-old was arrested after he shot the officer outside his home in March in Rocklands, Mitchell’s Plain. 

Smith added that when the man was arrested he was also found to be in possession of a 2.2 pistol. 

“This is one of six officers in the city that have been injured since the beginning of this year. This particular case is the first one where we have had a real breakthrough” Smith added.

Smith empathized that they are working closely with the National Prosecuting Authority to achieve a conviction.  If we cannot protect our members in uniform then they cannot protect the public.
