National Police Commissioner Bheki Cele has apologised to Andries Tatane’s family for his brutal death during a Ficksburg protest last week.

He says he wanted to visit the family last week, but was out of the country.

Cele added that he was humbled by Tatane’s widow, Rose’s, willingness to welcome him to her home, in the light of the community’s anger over the tragic incident.

Six members of the police’s public order unit will spend the Easter long weekend behind bars after being arrested in connection with the fatal assault.
