2013-03-05 00:00

POLICE are appealing for help in investigating the murder of a man in the city on Friday.

Phakamile Armstrong Mkhize (30) and two friends were walking along Retief Street when they were confronted by two unknown men, said police spokesperson Joey Jeevan.

“It is alleged that the men produced firearms and shot at Mkhize multiple times, seriously wounding him. The suspects thereafter fled in a waiting blue kombi with an unknown registration number.

“Mkhize was immediately rushed to hospital, where he later died of his injuries,” she said.

Jeevan appealed to anyone who could help the police with information to contact the investigating officer, Warrant Officer Robin Mays, at 033 845 2750 or 084 027 0000, or Crime Stop at 08600 10111.
