Security officers arrested for murder


The four security officers that allegedly shot and killed a man appeared in the Senwabarwana Magistrate’s Court on charges of murder and attempted murder   on June 18.

They are Thabo Masilo, 26, Khetta Ngobese, 45, Sthembiso Hlabisa, 30, and Isaac Malema, 43. The officers killed a man who they believed had killed one of their colleagues, police said.

“The men went looking for a suspect on Monday morning after receiving a report that he was responsible for shooting, killing and robbing one of their own, said Limpopo SAPS’s spokesperson Col Moatshe Ngoepe.

Ngoepe said they never reported the matter to police but instead traced the man – 24-year-old Masilu Mothemela – to a house in Mohodi Manthata village outside Mogwadi.

“They interrogated him before allegedly shooting him in the chest, killing him instantly. They also allegedly shot and injured his friend before fleeing the scene.”

Seven men were arrested but only four were linked to the incident. Police confiscated four pistols and three rifles.

The SAPS said they would remain in custody until their formal bail applications on Friday. The police investigation continued.
