North West Provincial Anti-gang Unit arrested Paul Nguzo Ndamoyi (39) in Extension 13, Jouberton Location during an intelligence driven operation, for the alleged murder of Thabo Ntsie (43).

It is alleged that earlier in March 2022,  Ntsie was walking from a tavern, accompanied by his friends, when they met Ndamoyi. He allegedly shot Ntsie with a rifle and fled from the scene. 

Colonel Adéle Myburgh of North West Police said the victim was rushed to a local hospital where he was declared dead on arrival. “During Ndamoyi’s arrest, his house was searched and a magazine and ammunition were found. Thus, he was further charged with unlawful possession of ammunition.”

Myburg said both the victim and suspect are alleged to be members of the same gang commonly known as Al Qaeda.

Ndamoyi appeared before the Klerksdorp Magistrates’ court on Wednesday, 11 May 2022, on charges of murder and unlawful possession of ammunition. He is remanded in custody until Wednesday, 18 May 2022, for a formal bail application.
