Two brothers Siyanda Kato (27) and Siseko Kato(29) appeared in King William’s Town Magistrate’s Court on Thursday 4 August 2022. This is subsequent to the arrest of the duo by the East London based Serious Organised Crime Investigation team of the Hawks in a joint operation with Crime Prevention Unit on 2 August 2022 for allegations of murder.
Eastern Cape Hawks spokesperson Captain Yolisa Mgolodela said it is alleged that on 20 July 2022, the two brothers confronted Constable Ayabulela Williams (32) who was attached to Steve Tshwete Community Service Centre about his alleged abusive relationship with their sister and a fight arose.
“Constable Williams is reported to have sustained stab wounds during the fight. He was taken to Hospital in King William’s Town and later transferred to another where he sadly passed away”.
They are remanded in custody and will be reappearing in Court on 11 August 2022 for a formal bail application.
