Beware Of This Dangerous Criminal On The Loose|| If You See Him Do This Immediately

The Hawks have asked the public for assistance in locating Luzuko Yalezo, who is sought for the murder of police officer Sakhumzi Mbucela in Gugulethu. Yalezo is also accused of murdering a witness in the case a few days after the death of Mbucela, who was stationed at the Wynberg police station at the time. The suspect is thought to be in the informal settlements of Barcelona or Europe in Gugulethu, or in the Lusaka region, Nyanga, according to Hawks spokeswoman Philani Nkwalase.

"The Hawks' Serious Organised Crime Investigation Unit is looking for a wanted suspect, Luzuko Eric Yalezo, 36, in connection with the killing of a police officer." Yalezo reportedly shot and murdered a police officer, Sergeant Sakhumzi Mbucela, in August of this year in Gugulethu. Sergeant Mbucela was assigned to the Wynberg SAPS. The judge issued a warrant for his arrest. He is also suspected of shooting and killing the witness, 36, in this case, a few days ago," Nkwalase stated. "It is reassuring to know that there is an identified suspect who will be brought to justice," Popcru national spokesperson Richard Mamabolo said.

However, this is of little consolation to the officer's family and friends." Vincent Domingo, head of the Gugulethu Development Forum (GDF), requested the people to help the police identify the culprit. "The assassination of police officers has become the norm, which makes no sense because police officers are trained to defend our communities." We usually criticise the police minister for not deploying enough cops in our townships, yet people kill the same cops when they are deployed. Our townships have devolved into anarchy states with no rule and order.

People do what they want, and that needs to stop, Domingo remarked.
