SAEPU condemns attack on EMS officials in Schoonoord


South African Emergency Personnel’s Union (SAEPU) strongly condemned what they called “acts of criminality” intended on EMS personnel by some of the community members.”

According to the union, last Tuesday an unknown armed man went to Schoonoord EMS station and claimed to seek assistance on calling an ambulance for maternity related matters.

“Security officers asked him to bring his phone to make a call; he immediately pulled his gun and pointed it at our officials. He threatened to kill them and took all their belongings,” said SAEPU spokesperson Kgaladi Makuwa

Makuwa added, “It is unfortunate that community members, who are supposed to be part of campaigns to protect personnel from these robberies and attacks, are the ones who sit down and plan hoax calls to harm them.”

He called on Sekhukhune SAPS to act fast in arresting the suspects.

Sgt Lesetja Mphahlele of Sekhukhune SAPS confirmed to this publication that they are investigating a case of armed robbery.

He pleaded with those with information on the suspect to contact their local SAPS or the crime line 0860010111.
