The City of Cape Town’s Safety and Security Directorate held a memorial service for two Law Enforcement Advancement Plan (LEAP) Law officers, who were shot and killed in the last few weeks.

Zamikhaya Kwinana died while on patrol in Nyanga at the start of the SANTACO’s taxi strike, while Toufeeq Williams was caught in gang crossfire while off duty.

Cape Town Mayor, Geordin Hill-Lewis, said officers Kwinana and Williams were taken from their families and from their communities far too soon.

“These were young men in the prime of their lives – both in their thirties, both with young families and both with bright careers in law enforcement ahead of them,” said Mayor Hill-Lewis.

Mayoral Committee Member for Safety and Security, JP Smith said two suspects were involved in the shooting of Williams and the City confirmed that one of them has been arrested, while the second is still at large.

“Any person who witnessed the incidents or has information is urged to please report it to the City’s 24-hour tip-off line on 0800 110077,” added Smith.
