KWAMAKHUTHA police, who were investigating­ a case of murder, arrested an alleged murder suspect on 27 November.

“The suspect was arrested this week after members followed up information about his whereabouts. The arrested suspect (26) is due to appear in the Umbumbulu Magistrate’s Court today,” said Lieutenant Nqobile Gwala.

On 12 April, the victim, Mondli Mthembu (25) was on his way to a nearby shop in A section, KwaMakhutha, when he was approached by the suspect.

“You can run but you cannot evade the long arm of the law.
