After a month of intelligence gathering, the police has eventually rounded up two prime suspects in the murder of Khwesi Hudson, for subsequent trial.
The victim was attacked in a restaurant called Sakhumzi in Soweto last month and gunned down amidst fear and trepidation by other members of staff.
Police spokesperson Brigadier Mathapelo Peters confirmed that one of the suspect was arrested in KwaZulu -Natal while the other in Guateng.
The men, aged 23 and 25, were due to appear in the Orlando Magistrate’s Court on charges of murder, armed robbery and possession of an unlicensed firearm.
It was gathered that Police confiscated a firearm and a vehicle believed to have been used in the murder.
Unfortunate Hudson, who was a manager at Sakhumzi, was killed in the early hours of a Sunday morning last month after a botched armed robbery.
When the horrible incident, Gauteng police spokesperson Captain Kay Makhubele said the restaurant had closed for the evening and staff were busy cashing up when two men came to the entrance.
“The manager approached them to tell them that the restaurant was closed and they shot him several times after he refused to let them in. He died on the scene and the men fled the area following the shooting,” Makhubele said.
This incident is one in several other similar attacks that have besieged the area in recent times.
