Cape Town - A Namibian man was convicted of the murder of two police constables at the High Court in Cape Town on Thursday, Western Cape police said.
Colonel Tembinkosi Kinana said Fabianus Philipus was convicted for the murder of constables Pindiwe Nikani, 26, and Mandisi Nduku, 27.
The two constables were shot and killed, while on duty at Imizamo Yethu in Hout Bay in October last year.
Nikani died on the scene and Nduku who was seriously injured died later in hospital.
Philipus would be sentenced on September 18.
“We have always maintained that an attack on police officers is an attack on the state. Police officials are there to ensure the safety and security of communities as mandated by the country's Constitution and not to be targets of heartless killers,” said Western Cape police commissioner Lt-Gen Arno Lamoer.
“Today's court decision must serve as a good lesson that will send a strong message to other criminals, that the decision to kill our police is wrong on their part,” he said. - Sapa
