City of Tshwane fire fighter shot and killed outside Bronkhorstspruit Fire Station
The City of Tshwane Emergency Services Department is in a state of shock after a fire fighter was shot and killed outside a fire station in Bronkhorstspruit on Wednesday, 16 February 2022 at approximately 20h10.
According to fellow fire fighters, 59-year-old leading fire fighter Sonile Annah Mnguni went out to meet a person she had an appointment with after answering a call from the said person. They then claim to have heard gunshots moments after she had gone out of the fire station. After recovering from the shock and fear of the gunshots they heard, the crew went outside in search of her. Her body was discovered about 100 metres away from the fire station with multiple gunshot wounds. A paramedic certified her dead on the scene.
The City of Tshwane Emergency Services Department would like to offer condolences to her family, colleagues and friends for her untimely passing. The department has activated the Employee Wellness Section to offer counselling support for employees and the family of the deceased.
The motive for the gruesome killing is not yet known and is under investigation by the South African Police Service.
Our deepest condolences go out to her family, friends and colleagues. The FRI Team.
