Police Minister Fikile Mbalula disclosed on Tuesday that at least 45 people had been arrested in connection with the 'vigilante' murders in Philippi East.

This includes a handful of kingpins in the ongoing shootings that led to about 300 people storming the Philippi East police station this weekend to demand action.
