Officers must test blood for alcohol

There seems to be more and more fumbling by police officers. The failure by Metro Police to take the blood sample from the driver of the car in which Lebo Mathosa was killed is an injustice to the Mathosa family.

The same thing happened to me a couple of weeks ago.

I was hit by a drunken driver in Jouberton. When I asked officers to take a blood sample from the driver, I was told it was unnecessary since no one had died.

So I was surprised to find out that the officers failed to take a blood sample from the driver of Lebo's car despite the fact that she died.
