Intensive investigations conducted by SAPS Detectives in a recently reported murder case yielded positive results when suspects connected to the case were arrested.
Ten suspects aged between 20 and 47 years were arrested on 2 August 2017, at Mphangana locality, Libode following the killing of four men aged between 33 and 55 years for alleged stock theft on 31 July 2017.
The suspects will appear in the Libode Magistrates’ Court on Friday, 4 August 2017, facing charges of kidnapping and murder.
Eastern Cape Provincial Commissioner, Lt Gen Liziwe Ntshinga commended the detective teams for securing the speedy arrest of the alleged perpetrators. “Lawlessness will not be tolerated and those involved in crime must rightfully fear us because we will bring them to book. I must remind people again that, taking the law into their own hands is a criminal offence. They will be arrested, no matter how they try and justify their actions. Community members who have information on crime or the whereabouts of suspects, must contact their local police and inform them of their suspicions, there is no other option”, she said.
