Hawks members from Durban Organised Crime Investigation Unit arrested Morris Mdu Mkhungo (46) for extortion which happened in the Umlazi area.
Mkhungo was arrested on Friday 11 January 2019, following an intensive investigation by Hawks members. It is alleged that Mkhungo pretended to be a hitman who was hired to kill the complainant.
He allegedly phoned and sent text messages to her demanding cash so that he would stop carrying out the hit. Preliminary investigation has revealed that Mkhungo tried to extort money from several other victims.
He appeared in the Umlazi Magistrates Court today and was remanded in custody. The case was postponed to 22 January 2019.
