FOUR ARRESTED OVER MANDLA HLATSHWAYO’S MURDER
South Africa’s Jozi FM Mandla Hlatshwayo’s murder has sparked numerous actions by Johannesburg police, who have confirmed that four people were taken in for questioning in connection with the killing of the radio DJ.
Hlatshwayo and his friend Oupa Duma were shot and killed on Sunday evening during a robbery at a Soweto pub in Pimville.
Lieutenant Colonel Lungelo Dlamini said four people were taken in questioning.
“Police are questioning the suspects to see if they can link them to the shooting,” Dlamini said.
He said the suspects were found in possession of drugs and an unlicensed firearm.
For the family, his brutal murder is especially hard to accept since Hlatswayo’s father died in similar way decades ago.
The family will announce details of his memorial service and funeral soon.
