- A policewoman has been hailed a hero after going beyond the call of duty
- The cop was off duty when she stopped thugs with stolen goods
- Mzansi has been called to celebrate her on this Women's Day
Constable Nkele Mbatha went beyond the call of duty when she stopped some thugs recently. The off-duty cop from Alexandra noticed a suspicious-looking car driving recklessly on the road. She decided to follow the car to investigate.
The two occupants drove off and she pursued them in her own car until she cornered them after they crashed into a side barrier and another car. It turns out that the suspects were in a stolen car. The brave woman managed to recover the vehicle and stolen items, including TV sets, clothes and other household appliances.
Const. Mbatha is stationed at Sandringham Police Station. She could have decided to go on with her business, but she put her life in danger and responded to her oath to serve and protect.
On this woman's month and throughout the 365 days of the year, Const Mbatha can be considered a hero.
Meanwhile, Briefly.co.za previously reported that the South African Police Service has paid a final salute to the late Constable SM Buthelezi. The fallen hero was honoured for the sacrifices he made for the country. The late Constable was 36 years old and was stationed at the Ntuzuma Police Station in KwaZulu-Natal. He served the force for six years, risking his life to protect his community. His life was unfortunately cut short by a criminal.
