Help find 4 of SA's most wanted - cops

2011-05-06 07:36

Johannesburg - The public must help in tracking down four of South Africa's most wanted "dangerous" criminals, Gauteng police said on Friday.

"The men have been linked to scores of bank robberies, cash-in-transit heists and murders," said Gauteng Police Commissioner, Lieutenant General Mzwandile Petros, in a joint statement with Crime Line.

"There is someone out there who knows these suspects and their whereabouts. Don’t approach them. Do the right thing and give us detailed information and we will act."

He said useful information can be submitted via Crime Line’s 3-22-11 SMS service or on the website.

Alternatively, members of the public can also call the 24-hour Crime Stop number, 08600 10111.

Escaped custody

The first of the four wanted criminals is Bongani Mojo, 29, who is linked to at least 35 bank robberies since 2006. He escaped from Boksburg prison on March 28, 2011. His latest hit was at the Absa bank at the Monument Park shopping centre in Pretoria on Thursday where he held the bank manager hostage and walked out with thousands of rands.

Khumbulani Sibanda, 37, is wanted in connection to 13 bank robberies and is allegedly an accomplice to Mojo. He also escaped from Boksburg prison the same day Mojo did.

The third criminal's name is unknown but he is referred to by some as 'Ogies'. He is also wanted in connection with bank robberies and it is suspected that he is an accomplice of Mojo and Sibanda.

Victor Baloyi is wanted in connection with a cash-in-transit robbery and murder relating to an incident in August 2010 at a Sasol garage on the R511, outside Pretoria. His accomplice, Lazarus Sefala, was arrested and remains in custody.
