Johannesburg - Four people have been arrested in Blue Downs, Cape Town, in connection with the murder last month of Sergeant Mthunzi Mbonjwa, Western Cape police said on Friday.

The suspects, aged 16, 17, 21, and 47, were arrested in an intelligence-driven operation on Thursday night, Lieutenant Colonel André Traut said.

Mbonjwa, 35, was off duty when he was shot dead in Putnam Road, Mfuleni, around 07:00 on 25 June.

The policeman was attached to the crime intelligence unit at the Khayelitsha police station.

Traut said an unlicensed gun and ammunition were recovered when the arrests were made.

The four suspects would appear in the Blue Downs Magistrate's Court on Monday.
