Student cop behind bars
The 41-year-old student policeman who allegedly shot 16-year-old Thato Mokoka was arrested today, the Independent Complaints Directorate (ICD) said.
“The arrest has been carried out,” said ICD spokesperson Moses Dlamini.
Mokoka was shot and killed on Tuesday evening outside his grandmother Sybil Mokoka’s home in Bramfischerville Phase Two, Soweto.
Dobsonville police raided the boy’s home after neighbours told them he had an unlicensed gun.
