Pretoria - George Louka, the alleged killer of controversial strip club boss Lolly Jackson is sending shivers through the crime underworld after having arrived back on South African soil.

According to the Sunday Times, Louka touched down at OR Tambo last Sunday and made a fleeting appearance in the Kempton Park magistrates’ court on Monday. He was flanked by members of a special task force and is being held at a secure location.

Hawks spokesperson Captain Paul Ramaloko said that Louka was being very co-operative and that he was key to local enforcement agencies being able to unravel and blow open the complexities of the local crime underworld.

However, forensic investigator Paul O’Sullivan said that Louka was not Jackson’s killer. He said the myth of what happened that night would soon be blown wide open and that there should be a lot of very worried “crooks and cops out there”.

Louka witnessed Jackson's murder

In November last year Louka claimed that he witnessed the killing of Jackson but denies that he is to blame, The Star reported.

In a recorded interview a man, whom the newspaper identified as Louka, claimed he had information that would help convict Jackson's real killer.

He also claimed he had spoken to the investigating officer a number of times, offering to return to South Africa if he was granted witness protection.

Louka said the people behind the killing had stolen millions of rand from Jackson and Jackson became aggressive. This was what had sparked his murder.

"They are professionals," he reportedly said, but did not disclose who "they" were.
