Three men have been arrested by the South African Police in connection to the shooting that led to the death of Actress, Thandeka Mdeliswa.
LIB reported earlier that the 34-year-old actress who played the role of Khanye Hlophe in SABC’s Ikani, was shot outside her family home in Evander days ago. The suspects fled, including the triggerman. The police launched a manhunt which culminated in their arrest.
Lt Gen Mondli Zuma, the provincial police commissioner of Mpumalanga said the arrested suspects aged 24, 27 and 29, will face charges of murder and unlawful possession of a firearm.
Zuma said; “We are glad that the suspects have been arrested, including the alleged murderer.
“We also believe that at least the arrest will bring comfort to the family as they will be able to find closure on the matter.
“It is my pleasure to also commend the good work done by both teams in the apprehension of the suspects,” said Zuma. The three will appear in the Evander Magistrate’s Court on Monday.
