CAPE TOWN – A senior Western Cape police official has paid tribute to the late Charl Kinnear.

His murder has left a void in the police service, say colleagues.

The anti-gang unit member was shot dead earlier this month, outside his Bishop Lavis home.

It’s widely believed that he was assassinated as Kinnear had been involved in investigations into the criminal underworld.

A memorial service is being held for him on Wednesday in Belhar.

Major-General Andre Lincoln: “I find the task daunting. Lieutenant-Colonel Charl Kinnear is dead. He was brutally killed. That without a doubt is the reason for the heaviness in my spirit.”

One suspect has been arrested.
