More arrests expected in connection with the murder of Mkhondo Councillor: Premier

Mpumalanga Premier Refilwe Mtsweni-Tsipane says more arrests are imminent in connection with the murder of Mkhondo Councillor, Sibonelo Ntshangase.

Ntshangase and two others were gunned down in Ethandukukhanya Township last Friday. A third suspect has been arrested following the arrest on Monday of former Mayor, Vusi Motha and security company boss Willington Sangweni who were charged with possession of an unlicensed firearm and contravention of the Firearm Control Act.

The third suspect is facing a murder charge and Mtsweni-Tsipane says that she’s happy with the progress made in the case.

“We are quite happy with the progress that has been made thus far-the male suspect was arrested yesterday, and immediately after that – he then went for a parade in which he was positively identified. He will be appearing in the Pietretief Magistrate Court tomorrow- and more arrests are coming.”
