Suspect hands himself to the police for murder of City of Cape Town Official

A 40-year-old man has handed himself over to police for the murder of City of Cape Town official, Wendy Kloppers. Kloppers was shot dead in Delft in February last year in an apparent case of mistaken identity.

The 48-year-old Kloppers, who worked for the city’s environmental affairs department was visiting the Delft Symphony Way housing project site to conduct an inspection when she was gunned down.

Kloppers was allegedly mistaken for a woman who won the construction contract, as the culprits were believed to be part of the construction mafia.

According to reports the suspects arrived at the housing construction site on foot and asked to speak with an unknown individual when he suddenly started shooting at the individuals on the site. Wendy Kloppers died on the scene due to injuries sustained and a second victim, 40 years old, sustained a gunshot wound to her arm”.

“The arrested suspect will appear in the Cape Town Magistrate’s Court on Tuesday on charges of murder and attempted murder,”  Police spokesperson FC Van Wyk said.
