Cele wants justice for slain police officer: ‘This killing must anger all of us”


Beauty Marivate, a Mpumalanga police officer, was killed in the line of duty by an armed gang who shot her in December

Police Minister Bheki Cele is once again talking tough, particularly against the killing of officers, in the wake of the fatal shooting of a Mpumalanga station commander.

Colonel Beauty Marivate was killed in the line of duty while responding to a supermarket robbery on 30 December 2021. The 55-year-old woman was fatally wounded when an armed gang opened fire on her vehicle when she arrived on the scene. Marivate was a station commander at Elukwatini SAPS and is survived by four children and nine grandchildren.
