    COLLEAGUES from the Richards Bay Police Station gathered at the Veldenvlei Community Hall on Thursday to pay their respects to Detective Sgt Innocent Senzo Ndawonde.

    The much-loved member, who was engaged in final preparations for his impending marriage, passed away suddenly last week after a brief illness.

    Mourners were joined by members from a number of other police stations and units, as well as from representatives of government departments, including Justice, Transport and Education.
