DURBAN – Following the killing of four family members last month at Sabhuza in KwaMbonambi, detectives worked tirelessly trying to put all the pieces together. Their hard work paid off when two suspects were arrested.

On 1 March 2022, the team of detectives from KwaMbonambi arrested two suspects aged 39 and 42 at Nseleni Reserve for charges of murder. The 42-year-old suspect was found in possession of a pistol and he appeared in the Empangeni Magistrates Court for unlawful possession of a firearm. Both suspects will appear before the Empangeni Magistrates Court tomorrow facing four counts of murder and attempted murder.
