Three suspects facing various charges, including murder, will apply for bail today at the Lephalale Magistrate Court in Limpopo.

Elvis Makiviri, Amos Ngwenya, and Samson Mphofu have been charged with murder, robbery, possession of unlicensed firearms, kidnapping, and violating the Immigration Act.

Police spokesperson Malesela Ledwaba stated that the police have recovered two guns and ammunition. Ledwaba mentioned that the suspects allegedly killed a person in Lephalale last Monday.

“They then tracked down and arrested one suspect, who later revealed the names of his accomplices. The operational team followed up on this information and arrested two additional male suspects, both Zimbabwean nationals. The firearm used in the crime was recovered. The suspects were detained and charged at the Lephalale police station.”
