The mother-in-law and wife of murdered funeral parlour owner Jabulani Nkosi are among those who will appear in the Balfour Magistrate's Court on Monday in connection with his death, the Hawks said on Sunday. 

"The magnificent art of police investigation has successfully led to the arrest of the suspects in connection with the death of Jabulani Isaac Nkosi," Hawks spokesperson Brigadier Leonard Hlathi said in a statement. 

Nkosi, 58, was killed in a volley of bullets when four people burst into his home in Balfour on the morning of January 19. 

Hlathi said the seventh person arrested is Nkosi's 64-year-old mother-in-law Maria Naniwe Nkabinde. She was arrested on Wednesday, February 5 in Standerton and she made a brief appearance in court on the same day.

A 17-year-old girl was among them. 

Nkosi survived an attempt on his life on January 8 when he was shot by two men in balaclavas. He was rushed to the hospital and treated. He was discharged from hospital on January 16, only to be shot again days later.
