The Limpopo police are offering a combined reward of half a million rand (R250 000 each) for information that could lead to the arrest of the person(s) responsible for the brutal murders of two South African Municipal Workers’ Union (Samwu) members in the Vhembe District in January
“The deceased were murdered during separate incidents. Mr Ronald Mani, aged 50 at the time, was gunned down at Itsani village just outside Thohoyandou by an unknown assailant at the local liquor outlet. The incident took place on Wednesday, 30 January, at about 20:00,” said provincial police spokesperson Brigadier Motlafela Mojapelo.
The second murder relates to the death of Mr Timson Musetsho Tshimangadzo. “Mr Timson Musetsho Tshimangadzo (Tshililo) was shot in a similar fashion outside his home at Makwarela, north of Thohoyandou, and later died in hospital. The shooting took place on Friday, 4 January,” said Mojapelo.
According to Mojapelo, the murders prompted the provincial commissioner of the South African Police Service in Limpopo, Lieutenant General Nneke Ledwaba, to establish a high-level task team led by the deputy provincial commissioner responsible for crime detection, Major General Samuel Manala, to investigate these cases.
“Anyone with information that can lead to the arrest of the suspect(s) is requested to contact Brigadier James Espach at 082 576 0743, Lieutenant Colonel Paradise Nkuna at 072 299 2888 or the crime stop number 0860010111. Any information received will be treated with the strictest form of confidentiality,” said Mojapelo.
