A 23-YEAR-OLD man, apparently the last suspect in the brutal murder of an elderly Shongweni Village couple, will appear in the Pinetown Magistrate’s Court today. The Shongweni K9 unit, in conjunction with Hillcrest detectives, arrested the man on Wednesday and charged him for the murder of John (72) and Hester Noble (68) during a home invasion last week. The Nobles were assaulted and strangled with a piece of wire and oxygen tank pipes in their home. Provincial police spokesperson Colonel Jay Naicker said the man and the other eight are all from Shongweni, and were arrested in the area. Philani Shange (20), Siyabonga Xaba (24) and Scelo Mathabane (30) appeared at the Pinetown court on Wednesday for murder and armed robbery. Their co-accused, Mduduzi Sishi (30), Skhumbuzo Sithole (39), Jabulani Mthombeni (26), Sihle Dlamini (21) and Ndoda Ngcobo (35), appeared alongside them in court for possession of stolen property. Their case has been adjourned to November 20 and they were remanded in custody. On Tuesday, the couple’s son, John Jnr (47) said if he could see his parents’ killers, he would forgive them because he had also recently forgiven criminals who had caused harm to his family. He told The Witness that his daughter had recently been a victim of crime and had to come face-to-face with the perpetrators, and he felt he had to forgive them. In a Facebook post last Friday, John Jnr wrote: “God’s peace surrounds us as a family. Please hear me, only love can heal our land. A love revolution will heal our land and will eventually heal the hurting people who hurt others”.
