Vosman kidnapping and murder suspects denied bail

Three of the four suspects, who were arrested in connection with the kidnapping and murder of 13-year-old Gabisile Shabane, who was living with albinism, as well as 15-month-old Nkosikhona Ngwenya, were denied bail by the Witbank Magistrate’s Court today.

Police had previously reported that the suspects broke into a house at Vosman on Sunday, 28 January 2018, and kidnapped the above-mentioned children. A manhunt for the suspects and a search to locate the children was instituted, which led to the arrest of four suspects and the recovery of the lifeless bodies of the children.

The suspects, Thulani Thobela aged 26, Donie Cavin Boshielo aged 22 and Mthobisi Brilliant Mkhize aged 26, are scheduled to appear again at the same court on 01 June 2018, for further investigation alongside with the fourth suspect Thokozani Msibi aged 32, who was also denied bail last month.
