Investigation update: It's War

“This wasn’t a hijacking. This wasn’t theft. This wasn’t robbery. The guys who did this were carrying out a hit. I don’t think there is any doubt about it,"...

"Police are hot on the trail of the businessmen who ordered the hit on specialist policeman Warrant Officer Johan Nortje this week, and disclosed yesterday that the hero cop had made a R100-million counterfeit bust in Durban harbour three weeks ago....."

"Mandlenkosi Chiliza, 21, and Nkosinathi Ntuli, 27, were arrested during a raid on a home in Umlazi’s T-section at about 3am on Friday, and Bheki Khuzwayo, 44, was arrested in a separate raid in Maphumulo on Friday afternoon. During a raid in Umlazi, Philani Dlamini, 33, was shot and killed after he allegedly opened fire on officers as they went to arrest him - he is the man believed to have pulled the trigger and kille d Nortje. The other three will appear in the Durban Magistrate’s Court tomorrow. During the arrest, a Toyota Condor, believed to have been the getaway vehicle, and a 9mm pistol were recovered. Police spokesman Lieutenant Colonel Vincent Mdunge said it was “possible” that this was the gun used to kill Nortje, but that they were awaiting ballistic results." IOL news site

Afro Leo has emailed Interpol, WCO and expects to speak with KwaZulu-Natal police commissioner Mamunye Ngobeni today for comment. Although it is  welcome that the police are taking this  very seriously, the real instigators - those that ordered the alleged hit - are still at large.

In the meantime PLEASE VOTE - (see IPKAT comment here). Thanks to those that have and who have written in. Not all have been published.
