Two suspects, aged 34 and 45, are expected in court on Monday after they were arrested by the Hawks for the alleged murder of the Chief Whip of the Sakhisizwe Local Municipality.

"The two were arrested on Saturday at their respective homes in Tsolo and Elliot," said Hawks spokesperson, Captain Anelisa Feni. 

"Thanduxolo Peter Nobongoza (42) was shot dead on whilst strolling in Cala."

Capt Feni said that the Hawks’ Queenstown Serious Organised Crime Investigation Unit assisted by the Provincial Crime Intelligence, the Provincial detectives, SAPS organised Crime Unit, Tactical Response Team and Public Order Policing worked around the clock, following up on leads and led to the arrest of the two suspects.

"They are expected to appear Cala Magistrate Court on Monday on a charge of murder. Further charges cannot be ruled out."
