Mpumalanga police are continuing their search for two of three assailants who broke into the home of a police officer and her husband and shot the couple dead.
Sergeant Thembisile Ndlovu, 42, and Jabulani Khoza, 40, were asleep when three men broke into their home at Angin Court near Bushbuckridge on Saturday.
“They were suddenly attacked by three unknown men who reportedly gained entry through a window,” said provincial Saps spokesperson brigadier Leonard Hlathi.
“Once inside, a shootout ensued and Ndlovu managed to shoot one of the attackers who died at the scene. The other two suspects are reported to have fired at the couple, instantly killing the sergeant [Ndlovu].”
