He would appear in the Protea Magistrate's Court soon, Makhubela said.

A 33-year-old man accused of a double murder was arrested in Merafe, Soweto, on Tuesday, Gauteng police said.

The man was caught after he instructed his lawyer to call the police, Warrant Officer Kay Makhubela said.

He allegedly shot two men dead at the Merafe hostel on September 23, and had been on the run since.

Spent R-5 rifle and 9mm pistol cartridges were found on the scene of the crime.
