On the morning of 15 May 2019, at about 09:00, police arrested three suspects aged between 28 and 33 years next to Qanga Location outside King Williams Town. The arrest comes after King William’s Town Cluster Commander Brigadier Ngubelanga was on his way back from Jali High School and spotted a suspicious vehicle on the N2 road between Peddie and King Williams Town.
