MPUMALANGA police have sent off a manhunt for suspects who gave dead an off-the-clock cop.

Silvester Samkelo Nkosi (34) at the Water repository or 2010 Soccer Ball was gunned down at a water supply in Steiltes, Mbombela, on Monday, 23 January, at around 7.30 pm.

Nkosi, who worked for contracted company Mpumalanga Branch of Local area Wellbeing, Security and Contact, was lethally shot and denied of his white VW Golf 7 and his administration gun.

Brigadier Selvy Mohlala said on that pivotal evening, police in Mbombela got a grievance about a shooting occurrence.

"Upon landing in the scene, police found the cop in a pool of blood. The clinical work force tragically ensured him dead. An instance of homicide, with extra charges of burglary and carjacking, is being explored by the police.

"Nobody has been captured up until this point. Yet, primer examination shows that the official was with a female companion when two equipped suspects went after them.

"The female companion was purportedly safe during the occurrence and she went to call for help at the closest filling station. The suspects escaped with the casualty's vehicle and administration gun," Mohlala said.

Mpumalanga police magistrate Lieutenant-General Semakaleng Manamela has unequivocally denounced the episode and promised that the culprits won't discover an authentic sense of reconciliation until they are secured.

"A manhunt for the suspects has since been sent off and a group of specialists in the field of examination has been gathered. It's notable that in this region, we don't squint an eye at whatever point wrongdoing is perpetrated. There will be no distinction on this case. The suspects better hand themselves over to the specialists before we get to them," she said.
