Seven suspects were arrested in connection with Andile Mbuthu’s murder, however charges were dropped for the meantime against the seventh under aged suspect. The suspects were charged with murder and kidnapping but due to lockdown restricted movements, their case has been dragged.


Bobo’s identity was revealed earlier this week when DNA tests were conducted against the decomposing body that was found in Newton river and the result was a positive identity.
