Durban - Two men wanted for various crimes including murder were killed in separate shoot-outs in KwaZulu-Natal, police said on Saturday.

Police spokesperson Colonel Jay Naicker said they had received a tip-off on Friday that one of the men was at Tehuis Mense Hostel in Umlazi.

Sibusiso Smangaliso Mbhele, 27, had allegedly been involved in a murder in the Highflats area and a hijacking in Umlazi.

Mbele fired at flying squad members while attempting to flee, hitting a police constable on his bullet proof vest. Police returned fire and Mbele was killed.

A pistol, with its serial number removed, was recovered at the scene, said Naicker.

Unrelated incident

In another unrelated incident on Friday, police surrounded a house in Hlazakazi Ward, Dundee where Ndukenhle Stambu Ngobese was hiding.

Ngobese was linked to a murder in Dundee in April.

Before police could enter the building, Ngobese allegedly came out firing his gun. Police returned fire, killing him. Police recovered a number of spent 9mm cartridges at the scene and a gun with the serial number removed.

Both incidents have been reported to the Independent Police Investigations Directorate.

    Hit them hard SAPS, take this as a warm up session. There are 15 000 more to be relased from prison soon.

  • Stefaans - 2012-05-05 17:24

    Thank you SAPD this is the only language they understand, Live by the gun die by the gun. That is the way to deal with robbers, rapists, and murderers. Keep up the good work

      You see if you BRING BACK THE DEATH PENALTY NOW and make it retrospective from 1994 our prisons will empty very quickly and our green army will have had some much needed target practice assuming the firing squad. I would, however, prefer to use them for chumming in Gansbaai. Our sharks need to be fed.

  • Lacrimose - 2012-05-05 17:47

    They have no choice. We're already letting 35 000 people out because the prisons are full. No time and no space for a new intake.

    Well done SAPS. Keep up the good work. Clear the scums from the community.

  • Johan - 2012-05-06 08:14

    Since the new rules about ownership of fire arms it seems that more criminals have weapons than private persons.

  • gailcarolynhayes - 2012-05-06 09:51

    Well done - two less criminals for the cops to hunt down, the justice system to prosecute just for Zuma to let them out again on some ridiculous pretext. Tax money saved as well.

  • Christine - 2012-05-08 15:04
