Mbombela - A man suspected of shooting dead Mbombela municipality speaker Jimmy Mohlala has been arrested, Mpumalanga police said on Tuesday.

"The man, in his 30s, was arrested in his hiding place in Matsulu on Monday at about 17:00," Captain Leonard Hlathi said.

"He is the suspected trigger puller in the murder of Mohlala."

His arrest follows that of four other people who were arrested on Saturday in connection with the murder.

They appeared in the Kabokweni Magistrate's Court on Monday and were granted R10 000 bail each.

Their case was postponed to November 5.

During the arrest of the alleged gun man, police found furniture believed to have been stolen from Mohlala's home.

Mohlala was shot dead outside his home in January last year following his exposure of irregularities in tenders issued for the construction of the R1bn Mbombela Stadium in Nelspruit for the World Cup.
