CAPE TOWN – Western Cape Deputy Police Commissioner Mzwandile Mzamane has urged members of the public to pray for the police partner of slain Constable Christopher Mouton.
Mzamane addressed the congregation at a memorial service held for the official in Ravensmead earlier on Wednesday.
The 30-year-old father of two was shot and killed while sitting in a patrol vehicle last Wednesday night, when a colleague accidentally discharged a firearm while cleaning it.
Mzamane says Mouton was loyal and committed to his work.
“He led his team with a great sense of passion and confidence. Information from his commanders suggest a young man, who was driven and had a sense of purpose and commitment.”
