The Anti-Gang Unit (AGU) has reportedly withdrawn its protection services provided to slain top cop Charl Kinnear’s widow, Nicolette.
A leaked document which the Cape Times has seen reads:
“On the basis of the instruction received on 2021-05-31 by acting provincial commissioner, major general Patekile, members of the AGU will withdraw from guard duties on 2021-06-01 at 6am.”
“This will include both static and close protection duties that were provided to you.”
The Cape Times further confirmed that Nicolette on Tuesday verified that the said document was delivered to her and it was signed by the acting unit commander of the AGU, Karl Wiegand.
“I have been in discussions with various other people and at this stage, I don’t know what is happening.
“I’m not at home at the moment, so I’m not sure if they have been withdrawn or not.
“I don’t know where things stand at the moment and it’s difficult for me to say anything and I’m hoping that I will receive some kind of communication from someone or somewhere,” said Nicolette.
Commenting on the matter SAPS spokesperson Novela Potelwa said that security issues of individuals are best not discussed in public.
