Police Minister Fikile Mbalula has commended the work of the South African Police Service (SAPS) in KwaZulu-Natal for arresting a suspected murderer at the Glebelands Hostels.
Mondli Mthethwa is suspected to be linked to two murders at Glebelands as well as other murder cases in the Bhekithemba area.
SAPS members tracked down the man and when he was searched they found him in possession of an unlicensed 9mm pistol with 15 rounds of ammunition.
The suspect appeared at Umlazi Magistrate’s Court on Wednesday following his arrest on Christmas Eve.
Mbalula has thanked the people of Umlazi for their continued support of the efforts made by SAPS in bringing about safety at their community.
