2015-11-12 06:00

Nyanga police have finally arrested the man they believe is responsible for the gruesome murder of five people in Mau-Mau area earlier this year.

The 25 year old from KTC is alleged to have shot and killed four men in a stationery vehicle and another woman who was fleeing the scene on a Saturday night in March.

“The five victims were shot at while sitting in a vehicle.

A woman who came out of the vehicle to escape the shooting was shot on her back and was fatally wounded while running away from the vehicle.

The other four victims were driven away from the scene, others to hospitals but later succumbed to their injuries,” said Nyanga police spokesperson Captain Ntomboxolo Sitshitshi.

He will appear in Athlone Magistrate Court this week on charges of murder.
