Four people have been arrested in Blue Downs, Cape Town, in connection with the murder last month of Sergeant Mthunzi Mbonjwa, Western Cape police have said.
The suspects, aged 16, 17, 21, and 47, were arrested in an intelligence-driven operation last night, Lieutenant Colonel Andrè Traut said today.
Mbonjwa (35) was off duty when he was shot dead in Putnam Road, Mfuleni, around 7am on June 25. The policeman was attached to the crime intelligence unit at Khayelitsha Police Station.
Traut said an unlicensed gun and ammunition were recovered when the arrests were made.
The four suspects would appear in the Blue Downs Magistrates’ Court on Monday.
