 SAPS Provincial Office KZN reports that during the early hours of this morning a Multi-Disciplinary Task Team arrested two men wanted for the murder of an ANC Party Agent during voter registration on 10 November 2013.

It is alleged that Sabelo Sokhela (22) who was an ANC party agent during the voter registration was receiving threats on the day.   On the same day at 21:15 he was en-route to his home in Wembezi when he was shot and killed.  

At 4:00 this morning,  SAPS Detectives swooped on the suspects and arrested them at their homes in Wembezi.  Both men aged 34 and 35 will be detained on charges of murder and are expected to appear in the Estcourt Magistrates Court tomorrow. 

SAPS appeals to members of the community, local leadership and community based organisations within the area to work with police to address crime in Wembezi as police alone cannot win the battle if we do not have the involvement of all role-players.

We also make a humble appeal to those that have information that may assist in current investigations to please come forward,” she said.
