Two arrested by police for theft of King Goodwill’s cattle
TWO suspects accused of stealing Zulu King Goodwill Zwelithini’s cattle were arrested on Sunday, and four of the cows were recovered during the arrest.
The cattle were stolen at Dlomodlomo Camp in August this year.
The suspects were arrested by Vryheid police, together with the Zululand and Ngome Task Team assigned to locate the missing cattle.
Zululand Police Cluster spokesperson, Captain Nkosie Gwala, said more arrests should follow.
The suspects will appear in the Vryheid Magistrate’s Court for a formal bail hearing.
Capt Gwala said of the 21 stolen cattle, 10 cows were recovered soon after the incident.
‘These missing cows are estimated at over a million rand. A case of stock theft was opened at Ngome SAPS for further investigation.
‘This now leaves two other suspects who are still on the run. Four cows were recovered in the Glückstadt area during the arrest on Sunday.
‘We have also acquired a warrant of arrest against one of the suspects, Tiza Mthethwa, who is wanted for a stock theft case that was reported in 2016.
