Klaas Thokwana (54) who is accused of conspiring to assassinate his (42) year old ex-wife was granted R5000 bail on 20 December 2019, by the Secunda Magistrate’s Court.
Thokwana is expected to appear again at the same court on 11 March 2020.
He was arrested on Wednesday, 18 December 2019 by the Hawks’ Serious Organised Crime Investigation team in Secunda after allegations surfaced that he hired a 39 old woman to assist with the planned plot. The meeting between the two detailed how the alleged planned plot will be executed.
The so called hit woman later withdrew from the plan and informed the victim of the plot.
The matter was reported to the Hawks for further investigation. It transpired that late on Tuesday this week, the suspect allegedly contacted the hit woman and informed her that he was going ahead with the plan alone since she was apparently delaying him.
The investigating team was alerted and Thokwana was arrested on his way to the victim’s house in an intelligence driven operation.
During the arrest the suspect was in possession of his legal 9mm Norinco firearm that was seized.
