Johan Kotzé set to appear in court
Modimolle - Johan Kotzé, accused of orchestrating an attack on his estranged wife and killing his teenage stepson, will appear in the Modimolle Magistrate's Court on Friday.
Kotzé, 50, was arrested in the Limpopo town around noon on Wednesday. He had been on the run since the crimes were committed at his home in the town on January 4.
A nationwide manhunt was launched after Kotzé fled in a white Toyota Fortuner, and the other three men he allegedly forced at gunpoint to gang-rape his estranged wife, fled on foot.
It was reported that a local woman recognised him at shop where he was buying food and called the police, resulting in a night-long search.
He was arrested walking in a street in the town on Wednesday afternoon, offered no resistance and reportedly started crying.
He had been living in his car in the bush about 2km outside Modimolle.
One of the three workers he allegedly forced to participate in the attack, a 42-year-old man, was arrested in Makapanstad near Hammanskraal, north of Pretoria on Wednesday. He was also expected to appear in the Modimolle Magistrate's Court on Friday.
Limpopo police spokesperson Brigadier Hangwani Mulaudzi said more charges could be added as investigations unfolded.
The two other men were still at large.
