Reward for Mohlala murder info

2009-06-04 14:17
Johannesburg - A R100 000 reward is being offered for information that could lead to the arrest of ANC councillor Jimmy Mohlala's murderers, Mpumalanga police said on Thursday.

"We have received a few calls since we requested the public to help us on May 6, 2009 but information given was not accurate.

"A reward of R100 000 for information that will lead to the arrest and successful conviction of the suspects who killed Mohlala has now been approved," said Captain Leonard Hlathi.

He said the reward was decided on "to encourage those with information to come forward".

Mohlala, 45, was gunned down outside his house in Kanyamazane, in the Mbombela municipality near Nelspruit, on January 4 while trying to run away from two assailants.

His 21-year-old son was shot and wounded in the attack.

Since his murder, two people have been taken in for questioning but police could not link them to the killing.

Mohlala was in the news about a year ago following reports that some African National Congress members wanted him sacked for blowing the whistle on a colleague, Mbombela municipal manager Jacob Dladla, for his alleged involvement in corruption.

Hlathi urged those with information to contact him on 082 462 0804 or Detective Inspector Emson Mthombeni on 082 782 3059.
