Mahikeng - North West Premier Thandi Modise has welcomed the arrest of two men who allegedly kidnapped and murdered a woman.

"The long arm of the law will always catch up with those who take matters into their own hands," Modise said.

The law would also catch up with those who "devise wicked plots" against their partners instead of accepting that some relationships were irreconcilable.

Earlier on Sunday, North West police said the two men, including the estranged husband of the woman, were arrested in connection with her kidnapping, death and the hijacking of her boyfriend in Mmakau.

"One suspect was arrested on Thursday...and the other one was arrested on Friday...at Soshanguve and Stinkwater respectively," Captain Pelonomi Makau said.

Kidnap

A couple, both aged 42, were apparently approached by three men while they were sitting in their car near a pub in the early hours of last Saturday.

The three men held the couple at gun-point and ordered the boyfriend to drive two of them to Soshanguve.

The third man took the woman to a nearby car. Her estranged husband was allegedly inside.

The boyfriend was eventually let go and reported the incident to the police.

The body of the woman was recovered in the Rooival river near Hammanskraal last Sunday.

The woman's estranged husband apparently confessed to dumping the woman's body in the river.

Police were still searching for two other men.

Modise called on insecure men to seek counselling and professional help to assist them to deal with separation from their partners.

"We urge police not to leave any stone unturned until the two remaining suspects are behind bars," Modise said.
