Zululand Observer - Monday - - ZO NEWS - Wellington Mak­wakwa

THREE sus­pects have been charged with the mur­der of a 26-year-old man in eSikhaleni on Thurs­day.

Ac­cord­ing to po­lice the de­ceased’s body was dumped in the Mkho­bosa area by four un­known males in a bakkie.

The in­ves­ti­ga­tion led po­lice to a lo­cal homestead where a 25-year-old sus­pect was ar­rested.

Two other sus­pects, both aged 25, were later ar­rested in the Mand­lankala area in a car which po­lice dis­cov­ered be­longed to a 38-year-old woman, who was hi­jacked in the Im­bali town­ship in April.

Po­lice also re­cov­ered the bakkie al­legedly used to trans­port the de­ceased from where he was killed to the Mkho­bosa area.

The bakkie is also linked to a rob­bery at Mfenyane last month.

All sus­pects were charged with mur­der and pos­ses­sion of sus­pected stolen prop­erty.

The fourth sus­pect is still at large.
