Bail for Durban policewoman charged with boyfriend’s murder

Reports indicate the officer shot her partner with her state pistol.

A police officer stationed at the Durban Harbour Police Station was released on bail after a brief court appearance on Tuesday.

The officer reportedly shot her boyfriend in a heated argument which allegedly ensued when she found a receipt for condoms in his pocket.

Thokozani Christopher Zungu died of a single gunshot wound to the right side of his head. The incident reportedly happened in Woodlands, Montclair, on September 18.

Spokesperson for the Independent Police Investigative Directorate (IPID), Lizzy Suping, said: “Her bail was set at R3 000 to allow for further investigation. A state pistol was used to commit the crime and after the incident, the officer handed herself over to the police.”

Suping added that the IPID investigation is continuing and that the directorate will pronounce the outcome once the investigation is complete.
