The Hawks’ Serious Organised Crime Investigation members have made a remarkable breakthrough by arresting a woman and her alleged lover in connection with the murder of her husband, police Warrant Officer Mogokolodi Cleopas Digama. 

Speaking to journalists on Sunday, February 20, Hawks spokesperson Captain Matimba Maluleke said that prime suspect aged 41, who was married to the deceased was arrested at her home in Nebo area by the Hawks assisted by Tactical Response Team members on Friday, February 18. 

Her accomplice who is reported to be her boyfriend was arrested by the same team at Ga- Mashashane. Preliminary investigations revealed that the deceased’s wife have a child with her accomplice.

On 27 June 2021, the deceased who was on his way home from work was allegedly attacked and killed by heavily armed suspects in one of the spaza shops in Apel. The suspects reportedly drove off in his vehicle that was later found burned in Madibong village near Sekhukhune.

The matter was immediately referred to the Hawks and a massive manhunt for the suspects was launched. Through an intelligence-driven investigation by the police, two first suspects, Mpusheng Titos Malata (31) and Nosky Mabitla (31) were previously arrested in June and July 2021 respectively.

Malata and Mabitla were denied bail by the Sekhukhune Magistrates’ court and will appear again on 24 February 2022 at the very same court.

The deceased’s wife and her accomplice are expected to make their first appearance in the Sekhukhune Magistrates’ court on Monday, 21 February 2022 to face murder charges. Investigation is still on going.

The Provincial Head of the Directorate for Priority Crime Investigation, Major General Thobeka Jozi has since hailed the team for the arrest and a progressive ongoing investigation.

“An attack to a police official is an attack to the State” he added.
