Health MEC Dr Phophi Ramathuba sends condolences to the family of a security officer who was allegedly shot by his colleague while on duty. The two officers, male and female are stationed at Nyavani Clinic at Xihoko outside Tzaneen.
They reportedly had an arguement on the 6th of August 2020 while at work. The female personnel allegedly produced her work pistol and shot her male colleague multiple times before fleeing the scene.
The officer was immediately rushed to Letaba Hospital. Today (8/8/2020) he unfortunately succumbed to his injuries today.
MEC Ramathuba says violence should never be an option to settle disputes. “We are deeply saddened by the passing of this officer and we send out our heartfelt condolences to the family, colleagues and friends of the deceased.
We would like to once again call on our community members to refrain from resorting to violent mechanisms as a way of settling quarrels and squabbles,” said MEC.
