A 39- year-old suspect will appear at the Bishop Lavis Magistrate Court on Friday in connection with the murder of a 52-year-old Lieutenant Colonel Charl Kinnear.

Colonel Kinnear was shot and killed by unknown gunmen, last week Friday, meters away from the driveway of his home. At the time of his death, the Colonel was investigating high profile cases within the Anti-Gang Unit.

It is alleged that Kinnear had just arrived home when the suspect approached his car and opened fire on him at close range.

Minister Cele visited the family of the slain officer, where he assured the family that such a cowardice act will not be taken lying down.

The suspect was arrested in Gauteng on Wednesday and details surrounding the murder are still unknown.

More arrests are not ruled out as investigations are still underway.
