An intelligence driven operation was conducted on 13 April 2019, at Glebelands Hostel, by the Durban Flying Squad and Rapid Rail Police Unit.
The operation reaped fruitful results when a 25 year old suspect was arrested for murder. He was found in possession of a magazine with two rounds of ammunition. It is alleged on 29 July 2019, at 02:00, Simphiwe Ndebele (26) was shot and killed while at the Glebelands Hostel. He sustained multiple gunshot wounds to the upper body.
The arrested suspect will join his co-accused Senzo Cele (27) who was arrested last month for murder. He will also be profiled to check if he is linked to other murder cases committed at Glebelands Hostel and surrounding areas. Cele was remanded in custody until 24 April 2019.
The arrested suspect is expected to appear in the Umlazi Magistrates Court for murder.
