PRETORIA - The South African Police Service (SAPS) Brooklyn celebrate Women’s Month by acknowledging their female detectives for the good work they are doing.
Two of the detectives that were singled out were Constable Rendani Nemakonde and Constable Petunia Ramarumo for the good convictions they secured in their latest cases.
Constable Ramarumo investigated a house breaking and theft case that occurred in January this year in Menlo Park.  Joseph Zvomoyo (27) was arrested for stealing taps, copper pipes and window handles at an address in 22nd Street.  He was found guilty for house breaking and theft and for being undocumented by the Hatfield Community Court.  He was sentenced last month to six years imprisonment of which two years are suspended.
In a trespassing case that occurred in Anderson Street in Brooklyn last month, she secured another conviction.  The Hatfield Community Court handed down a fine of R4 000-00 or six month imprisonment to Samuel Masondo (31).
Also Constable Nemakonde showed that the female detectives at Brooklyn SAPS are a force to be reckoned with.  In February there was a house breaking at a student commune in Richard Street in Hatfield.  Charles Kgatla (33) was arrested.  He was found guilty and sentenced to five years imprisonment and declared unfit to possess a firearm by the Pretoria Magistrate’s Court.
In July a 20-year-old student was attacked by a car guard in University Road.  He stabbed her with a knife.  A motorist came to her assistance.  Malose Kgobe (27) was arrested by security guards.  He was sentenced to 18 months imprisonment by the Hatfield Community Court.
Brigadier Kushie Pietersen, Station Commander for Brooklyn SAPS honored all her female police officers who tirelessly dedicate their time and energy in creating safe communities for all.
