This af­ter a sus­pect was ar­rested by Mtun­zini SAPS. but was re­leased be­cause of lack of ev­i­dence.

Dubazana’s fam­ily ar­gued that it was not true that there was in­suf­fi­cient ev­i­dence to pros­e­cute the ac­cused, af­ter an eye­wit­ness sub­mit­ted a state­ment to the po­lice.

Siyanda Dubazana said his brother was stabbed once in the chest af­ter sep­a­rat­ing two fight­ing stu­dents.

‘Sibu­siso’s friend said af­ter sep­a­rat­ing them, the sus­pect went to his room to fetch a knife and stabbed my brother with­out say­ing a word.

‘We feel that the po­lice have failed us in this case. We are trau­ma­tised about these de­vel­op­ments. Mtun­zini SAPS has also failed to up­date us on the lat­est de­vel­op­ments.’

King Cetshwayo Po­lice Clus­ter spokesper­son, Cap­tain Mbon­geni Md­lalose, con­firmed that the murder case was pro­vi­sion­ally with­drawn at Mtun­zini Mag­is­trate’s Court ow­ing to in­suf­fi­cient ev­i­dence.

‘Our in­ves­ti­ga­tion is still un­der way, and if we find more ev­i­dence the sus­pect will be re-ar­rested,’ said Md­lalose.
