Johannesburg – The three men arrested in connection with actor Dumi Masilela’s attempted hijacking are appearing in the Benoni Magistrate’s Court on charges of murder on Friday.

Gauteng police spokesperson Lieutenant Colonel Lungelo Dlamini said the three men who had been held in connection with the failed hijacking of Masilela had been charged with murder as well.

The 29-year-old Rhythm City actor died in August after he was shot at by the occupants of a black Jeep.

Three people were arrested shortly after Masilela’s death.

Dlamini said following further investigation, the three men had been charged with murder as well as attempted hijacking.
