Correspondent|Police are looking for a suspected Zimbabwean national accused of hacking a police officer to death with a short machete while he was being arrested for allegedly raping his niece.

Simon Matakura is said to have hacked Warrant Officer Thinandavha Stanley Mudau who was investigating a case of rape against him for allegedly raping a 17-year-old relative.

Hawks Limpopo spokesperson Captain Matimba Maluleke said Warrant Officer Thinandavha Stanley Mudau, 52, was assisting the teenager when he was attacked on Sunday.

“Mudau, who was attached to the Thohoyandou Family Violence, Child Protection and Sexual Offences (FCS) unit, met with a female rape victim, aged 17, at his offices. The victim… informed Mudau that she was raped allegedly by her relative.

“Mudau took the victim to the police station to assist her with opening a rape case. Along the way, he decided to go via [the suspect’s] place in Sibasa outside Thohoyandou.

“Upon arrival at the suspect’s place, Mudau was abruptly attacked by the suspect with a panga, killing him instantly,” Maluleke said.

The rape victim was also attacked and was being treated in hospital.
