Twenty-year-old Siyanda Mfeka has been remanded in custody after he appeared in the Ndwedwe Magistrate’s Court on 29 January 2021, in connection with a cash-in-transit robbery perpetrated at Thafamasi cash payout site in the Ndwedwe area last year.
On 6 August 2020 at about 08:00 security guards were delivering cash at a pension paypoint when they were accosted by armed suspects. The suspects allegedly fired shots and robbed the security guards of their pistols and an undisclosed amount of cash, cell phones and a post office motor vehicle before they fled the scene.
Hawks members from the Durban Serious Organised Crime Investigation team received information about the suspect who was allegedly involved in another case who was appearing in court and he was arrested.
Mfeka’s involvement in other similar incidents now forms part of a further investigation by the Hawks. His case was postponed to 5 February 2021.
