A MAN has been arrested in connection with murder of a police officer in Kimberly. Mzwandile Majosi, 28 appeared in Kimberley Magistrate’s Court on Thursday.

The Hawks provincial spokesperson, Capt Philani Nkwalase said the body of Constable Lentswe Edward Mogorosi was discovered in the veld near Lerato Park on January 8 at around 05:45am.

“The police officer had sustained multiple stab wounds on his face and body. Some of the deceased’s personal items were allegedly recovered during Majosi’s arrest.

“The investigations revealed that Majosi was convicted of robbery in 2008, theft conviction in 2010 and has a pending case of possession of drugs in Kimberley. Majosi decided to abandon his bail application soon after Hawks’ Investigating officer presented evidence against his bail application,” Nkwalase said.

Northern Cape Hawks Provincial Head, Major General Kholekile Galawe welcomed the court outcome and applauded the investigating team for their commitment in ensuring that cop killers remain behind bars.

The case was postponed to March 23 for further investigation.
