handcuffsNews24 reports that a 31-year-old alleged police killer has been arrested and is due to appear in court on charges of murder, armed robbery and possession of an unlicensed firearm.  

The arrest followed the double murder of Detective Sergeant Thembisile Ndlovu and her husband Jabulani Khoza on 1 December in Bushbuckridge, Mpumalanga.  The couple was awoken by a disruption inside the house and upon inspection, they were fired on by three intruders.  The late Sergeant Ndlovu from Calcutta SAPS retaliated and fatally wounded one suspect, but was outnumbered by the suspects who continued shooting.  They fled the scene with the family's vehicle, which was later found abandoned.  The Mpumalanga Serious Organised Crime Investigation Unit assisted by the Nelspruit Tactical Response Team (TRT) made the breakthrough on Saturday, and found the suspect at his hiding place at Mhluzi outside Middelburg.  The search for the third suspect is ongoing.
