His sister, Nombulelo Katoyi said the family had not yet come to terms with her brother’s murder.
“We are still struggling a lot. We wish that the perpetrators can be arrested and for justice to take its course. We want to know why they targeted him. Was he at the wrong place at the wrong time? We have a lot of unanswered questions,” she said.
Katoyi, 39, was shot dead after police came under fire when they responded to a complaint in the Site C area. He and a fellow officer were responding to a complaint. Six men fired shots at the officers and fled with Katoyi’s pistol. He died at the scene.
