Dlamini has been linked to the death of Nkosingiphile Gcina who was found with multiple gunshot wounds at Mahlabathini area in Nsuze in February 2017 and the shooting of a 24 year old male who was attacked at a taxi rank in July 2017.

The accused has been notoriously known for allegedly terrorizing the community in Nsuze, Ngcongangconga and Bhamshela areas by threatening his victims with firearms, firing random shots within the homesteads and demanding people’s property at gunpoint whilst threatening retaliation if they report the incidents.

The KwaZulu-Natal Acting Provincial Commissioner, Major General Bheki Langa applauded the vigilance of the investigators and the good communication within the detectives in the province which led to the capturing of the accused. “The firearm seized from the accused was sent for ballistic testing to ascertain if it can be linked to other pending cases,” he said.
