SAPS to investigate death of two officers in Kraifontein

Western Cape Provincial Minister of Community Safety and Police Oversight Reagen Allen, has expressed his condolences after two officers lost their lives in an accident in Kraifontein, on Wednesday morning.

Sixolile Maram and Simphiwe Ntsham, were off duty when their vehicle overturned at Boy Briers Road, Joostenbergvlakte, Kraaifontein.

According to reports both the deceased, were found outside the vehicle before being declared dead on scene.

Allen said that the public should allow the affected families time to grieve and to prevent speculations around the incident. Meanwhile The South African Police Service (SAPS) stated that it would be investigating a case of culpable homicide.

Alderman JP Smith added: "I have reached out to both families to speak to them personally to commiserate with them about these tragic deaths.  Each staff member in our directorate is part of our Safety & Security family and their deaths are felt by us all.  We will support their families with counselling and any arrangements they need to make."
