WARDEN. – The police in Warden are looking for suspect(s) involved in the fatal shooting of Vusi Mlaba of Warden.

Mlaba, who was shot and killed at the beginning of May, was known for his social activism in town.

Lt. Zweli Mohobeleli of the Bethlehem police’s communication, marketing and liaison service says the neighbours were startled out of their sleep by gunshots on the fateful evening.

Moments later, the neighbours found Mlaba’s body in the street with several gunshot wounds, said Mohobeleli.

“The motive for the killing is still unknown,” he says.

“We appeal to members of the community to refrain from wild speculation and urge them to work with the police in resolving this heinous crime.

“We are leaving no stone unturned in our investigation to find the killers of Mlaba.”

The provincial commissioner, Lt.Gen. Simon Mpembe, said that a team of dedicated detectives had been assigned to the case.

Anyone who can shed light on the incident can contact Det.WO Mike Moloi on 060-451-1602.

Information may also be supplied to Crimestop by dialing 08600-10111 or by sending an SMS to 32211.
