Earlier in a similar development, another police  officer shot dead his girlfriend at her house in Khayelitsha, before driving to his own home in the 
area, where he shot and killed himself.

He said the 29-year-old police officer, Sithembele Makha, had an argument and fought with his 34-year-old girlfriend before he drew his firearm and shot her.

Police and Prisons Civil Rights Union spokesperson  said the union was shocked that the officer had killed his girlfriend and himself.

“The focus of investigation will be on the circumstances surrounding the deaths,” he said, adding the officer had allegedly called his girlfriend’s sister and informed her he had shot his girlfriend.

“We are against any form of violent acts, be it against police officers or any other citizen on our shores. We would want the security and safety of all residents of our country protected at all costs.”
