Limpopo SAPS are calling on the public to help identify two men who are suspected to have gunned down two local councillors of the Mogalakwena Municipality in Limpopo.

According to the Limpopo SAPS, the person who helps the police with information that can lead to the arrest and conviction of the suspects will be rewarded with up to R250 000.

In a statement sent to Move!, Limpopo SAPS spokesperson Brigadier Motlafela Mojapelo said, “We are making an appeal to anyone with valuable information that can assist the police in apprehending the suspect(s) to come forward, or anyone who can be able to recognize the person running in the footage or picture below, to contact Lieutenant Colonel Richard Boshomane at 0798945501 or may call the toll free number 0860010111 [sic].”

According to Mojapelo, the two victims, Valtyn Kekana (54) and Ralph Kanyane (32) were killed by an unknown assailant in July. Even though there’s CCTV footage, it has been hard to identify the suspects.

Valtyn Kekana was chairperson of municipal public accounts committee in the Mogalakwena municipality, and Alf Kanyane was the party’s branch secretary in the region.

“The deceased were apparently seated in a vehicle when the gunman approached and, at point blank, immediately started firing shots at them. They both died at the scene. The assailant allegedly fled from the scene on foot after the incident,” explained Mojapelo.

He says callers may choose to remain anonymous and confidentiality for any information received will be guaranteed.
