  1. Truly tragic and sad! Deepest condolences to his family, friends and associates who are left to mourn! On another note, I find it hard to believe that the tragic accident and loss of a brave police officer occurred on Saturday –and throughout the entire weekend the media did not report that the accident victim was a policeman! Instead, until Monday the media only reported that a bike rider was seriously injured when a bike and an SUV was in an accident! The local media is very inept insofat as gathering and dispensing vital information to the public in a timely manner.

  2. Truth be Told, things need to be done in a proper way. Not one to usual rush to the defence of some of our media houses but I think you got this one entirely wrong.

    Let the media do they due diligence and receive confirmation from genuine sources before they disclose certain information.

    All he media houses who didn’t report the young mans occupation before genuine verification were spot right.

    Come on people we do better, if they had prematurely and incorrectly reported that he was a Fire Man, you’ll be the first to lambace the media for getting it wrong. Media holds back for verification and confirmation before disclosure you’ll criticise.

    Rest in perfect peace young man and condolences to the family.

  3. Any system in place to assist the family of this officer. Is the police force opening an investigation into this cause of death. we have funny things happening these days. once kenny around

    same way they never said how the accident actually happened so people could understand but instead saying both vehicles were travelling at the same direction.

  5. Truth To Be Told- you need to read get your facts right and then you can run your beak. Stop all of that false info
