A 45-year-old murder suspect who was working as a regional organiser for a political party was arrested at a community meeting on Saturday and will soon appear in the Durban Magistrate’s Court, the police said on Sunday.

In a statement, the police spokesperson Colonel Jay Naicker said the suspect was arrested in Melmoth in connection with a murder committed in Cato Manor on the 29th of November in 2014.

The victim was stabbed to death after a dispute, ostensibly with the suspect who now worked for the National Freedom Party (NFP).

Naicker said, “The suspect went into hiding. Provincial Crime Intelligence members worked tirelessly and finally located the suspect where he was working… as a regional organiser in the Umthonjaneni District.” He also said after the gathering and verification of information the police headed to Melmoth Town Hall were the party was having its meeting and they arrested the suspect. After he was arrested, they took him to his house in Makhaseni, which was searched. They then took him to Durban where he will face charges of murder. He added that investigators believe that the suspect was also linked to various murder cases which were committed at the KwaMashu Hostel.

However, Professor Nhlanhla Khubisa, the NFP secretary general said the execution of the arrest was annoying as all those who were wearing NFP regalia were sprayed with teargas by the police.  He also said, “As the National Freedom Party we will not stand on the way of the law, [but] the law has to do things correctly.”

Furthermore, Khubisa denied that the suspect was a regional organiser and said they had not filled the position yet. He added that they need to check their records but the suspect was a member of the National Freedom Party.

    although a positive attention is good,but negative attention and perceptions harm the credibility and image of a south african police which has taken ninety- three years to develop from an autocratic apartheid force to a democratic institution based on human dignity,eguality and freedom.the conduct of police officials is constantly scrutinized by a public service act official mr masilo isaac mohoaduba who apply a true commission for declaration of secrecy to police “conduct due to an abuse of power and human rights violations. knowledge is power.an individual police officials could avoid negative attention e.g hammanskraal saps case no 300-11-2010.
