The suspect, a Nigerian national in his mid-thirties, was taken in for questioning on Sunday, August 14.

Mpumalanga police spokesperson Brigadier Selvy Mohlala, who confirmed the development on Tuesday, August 16, said the suspect has been charged in terms of defeating the ends of justice.

“We have taken him for questioning on Sunday afternoon and ultimately we managed to charge him today and he’s expected to appear in the Nelspruit magistrate’s court on Wednesday 17 August, facing the charges that I’ve just indicated,” he said.

“And I must indicate that we have indeed said from the beginning that we are not going to leave any stone unturned and all the people or all the suspects who have been involved in this particular case are going to be arrested.” he added.

Four other suspects, all South African nationals, have already appeared in court in connection with the murder.

Police arrested a fourth suspect in KwaThema in Gauteng last Thursday night.

Provincial police commissioner, Lt-Gen Semakaleng Manamela described the fourth suspect as a possible serial killer as he’s been linked to the murders of three other women.

“We can confirm that working with our team from Gauteng, we managed to arrest a suspect who was wanted [in connection to the case],” Manamela said.

“The suspect was arrested and is believed to be responsible for murder also in Sundra and of two sisters at KaNyamazane (in Mpumalanga) where one of the victims was a police officer.”
