WESTERN CAPE: The endeavours of our detectives to pursue every avenue to bring to book those responsible for violent crimes in this province were rewarded with the court appearance of a 30 year old suspect this morning in the Khayelitsha Magistrate’s court. The suspect, who was arrested on Monday evening during a tracing operation in Khayelitsha has been charged with three counts of murder, following an incident on the corners of Nyebelele and Ntengu Streets in Site C Khayelitsha where three male victims were shot and killed on the evening of 16 July 2022.
Kwezi Mphummzi (34), Mveleli Nobuzana (36) and Howard Mjamba (50) were gunned down during a mass murder, which sent our detectives on a man hunt for the perpetrators. While the arrested suspect who was previously convicted back in 2017 for the possession of an unlicensed firearm is making his first court appearance today, our detectives from Provincial Organised Crime are hard at work in pursuit of his accomplices.
