The City of Cape Town is shocked and saddened by the murder of one of its Law Enforcement Officers.

Officer Julian Davidson was shot dead in Lower Crossroads just after 21:00 on Friday.

The 30-year-old Officer was ambushed by a group of suspects while sitting in a marked Law Enforcement vehicle, waiting for a colleague.

It’s understood the perpetrators fired a number of shots at Officer Davidson through the side window of the vehicle.

The City conveys its deepest condolences to the family of Officer Davidson. We will assist them in any way possible through this very difficult time.

The Hawks are investigating the incident and we call on members of the public to come forward with any information that could assist in bringing those responsible to book.

The City Manager has also authorised a R50 000 reward for information in this regard.

(South Africa, August 2016) The Laureus Sport for Good Foundation and the Cape Wheel hosted a special cheque handover event at the V&A Waterfront recently, where R500 000 was donated to Laureus as part of the ‘Turn for Good’ fundraising initiative.

Earlier this year, Laureus SA and the Cape Wheel launched the ‘Turn for Good’ fundraising project where the Cape Wheel agreed to donate R5 from every Cape Wheel ticket purchase for an entire year towards the Foundation.

Funds raised through the ‘Turn for Good’ project will be used to support various projects funded by the Laureus Sport for Good Foundation. The Foundation currently supports and funds 20 projects across South Africa using sport as a means to combat some of the world’s toughest social challenges facing young people today, such as; HIV/AIDS, discrimination, social exclusion, lack of education, and health problems such as obesity.
