North West Police Commissioner Sello Kwena has condemned in the strongest possible terms the alleged execution-style murder of a 58-year-old Sello Kgasi by heartless criminals in Mmakau.

The incident occurred on Friday, 2 April 2021 at about 00:55. It is alleged that Kgasi was driving from Rosslyn towards Brits in a white Toyota Quantum minibus on the R566 road between Mmakau and Brits and accompanied by two female passengers. The vehicle got a puncture after it drove over spikes that were spread in the road near Solar Panels camp.

Captain Sam Tselanyane said Kgasi allegedly stopped the vehicle to fix the puncture, but was ambushed and shot by two suspects who were armed with firearms.

“As a result, He was fatally wounded and the suspects robbed him of his personal pistol and other belongings. Furthermore, the suspects also robbed the two passengers an undisclosed amount of cash and their cellular phones”.

Tselanyane said according to the reports, the suspects who are still at large, were communicating in Shona.

Motorists are warned to be very vigilant when approaching that area at night as it is becoming a crime hotspot.

Anyone who may have information that can lead to the arrest of the suspects, is requested to contact Sergeant Aubrey Kgomo on 082 520 1598.
