The suspect is expected to appear before the Mhala Magistrate’s Court soon.

According to Capt Dineo Sekgotodi, one of the suspects was arrested earlier this year when the Hawks took over the case.

The recently arrested suspect and an unknown one had been on the run for six months, until the latest arrest yesterday. Sekgotodi says the missing one will also be arrested soon.
