PRETORIA – A 45-year-old suspect will be appearing in the Vereeniging Magistrates court facing charges of incitement to commit arson and murder following his arrest on Friday, 6 August 2021.

The suspect was apprehended during an operation where a search warrant was being executed at Ironsyde in De Deur, South of Johannesburg. The operation was conducted by the members of the team of Crimes Against the State (CATS) team within the Hawks’ Serious Organised Crime Investigation. They were supported by the members of the SAPS National Intervention Unit, and Digital Forensic Laboratory experts of the Hawks.

This arrest comes few days after the Hawks have arrested Crispin Bethwell Sibongiseni Sikhakhane @ Nkinga on 3 August 2021 in Johannesburg. He appeared at Randburg Court where he was released on R3000 bail.

The National Head of the DPCI, Lieutenant General Lebeya appreciate the information that continue to flow from the public and encourages others to similarly provide the information that will help in identifying and tracing other instigators.
