Joseph Martin Maduma Mthethwa shared a post uploaded by Hennie Muller in which he praises to policemen, Edward Ntsuba and constable K. Makena.
These two police officers are proof that there are plenty of good cops in South Africa and not all police are corrupt.

What had happened is that two criminals rushed up to his car and smashed the window and ran off with his nephew's phone.
A gunshot rang out and he drove off to escape the situation. It turned out that Edward Ntsuba and K. Makena had witnessed the criminals and took action.
It was Edward who had fired the shot after witnessing the crime and he and Makena pursued the criminals. They caught them and recovered the phone and arranged for Hennie to collect it.
When he met the cops he thanks them and they responded that it was their jobs and they were happy to help.
Here is the full story:
"Two weeks ago we were driving home from my brother in laws funeral. We were sad and vulnerable and not thinking clearly as we stopped at a red robot in Central Pretoria. Suddenly two men ran up to our car, hit our window and grabbed my nephew's cellphone. We then heard a gunshot and were terrified."
"We drove off in the ensuing chaos. Minutes later we received a call from this awesome policeman Edward Ntsuba and his colleague Constable K.Makena.He had seen the entire incident and chased after the criminals. It was he who had fired the shot. He caught the thieves, arrested them and retrieved the cellphone. The call was to inform us that he would like to meet us and return our phone. Can you imagine our surprise and shock? "
"We met up and my nephew got his phone back. When I thanked Mr Edward, he said 'Don't worry Madam, this is our job....to keep you safe.' I would like to thank these two policemen for the amazing job they do on a daily basis and what they did for us. I cannot express my heartfelt gratitude to them both. People say the police are corrupt in S.A, that they don't do their job but Mr Edward Ntsuba and constable Makena are an exception, like many others. There is still good policeman in this country. "
"Let us honor them and not allow the few rotten apples to spoil the whole bag."
