Pretoria - A fourth man was arrested in connection with the murder of Congress of the People MP Jack Tolo, Limpopo police said on Monday.

"The suspect was arrested in Mamelodi last night [Sunday] and is now expected to appear in the Sekhukhune Magistrates' Court," Lieutenant Colonel Mohale Ramatseba said.

Peter Piet Ditshego, 30, Frans Matola, 33, and Solomon Nkosi, 41, have appeared in court in connection with the murder and were remanded in custody. They will return to court on January 25.
