On 24 October 2018 at 02:30, Osizweni SAPS were conducting crime prevention in their area when they spotted a burglar guard gate of a tuck-shop wide opened at E Section, Osizweni. The police officers stopped and went to investigate. When they entered the premises they found two bodies with stab wounds. The deceased were identified as Mosharaf Hosain(33) and Limon Mi (25). The police officers with the assistance of various units immediately began with their investigation surrounding the circumstances of the murders.

The team followed blood stains from the tuckshop into a back room where two suspects were found inside with blood stains on their clothes. They were arrested and a third suspect, who is a neighbour, was also arrested after the police officers found clothes with blood stains in the washing machine.

Stolen cash, 228 boxes of cigarettes, airtime vouchers and a knife suspected to be used during the killing of victims were recovered. The arrested suspects aged between 25 and 61 years are expected to appear in the Madadeni Magistrates Court tomorrow, on charges of murders, robbery and defeating the ends of justice.
