The murder of a traffic officer
The case against a man accused of murdering a traffic official in Mthatha has been postponed 17 March.
It is understood that Siphesonke Galoshe, 34, contravened traffic rules. According to Yolisa Mgolodela, Hawks spokesperson, Daniel Mxoli, 61, was killed after stopping a silver Toyota Tazz driven by the accused.
‘’The traffic officer turned his back on Galoshe and this when he allegedly alighted from his vehicle, took out his rifle and shot and fatally wounded an on-duty civil servant’.
Galoshe went into hiding after the officer's murder in October, but his relative forced him to turn himself in.
Galoshe, was denied bail in the Mthatha Magistrate's Court this week.
