Gang members apprehended regarding murder

Six members of the Votos Logos (VL) gang, aged 18 to 30, were arrested by officers of the Thabong Cluster Economic Stimulus Package (ESP) task team, the Welkom Public Order Policing reaction team and the Thabong Cluster Operational Command Centre on Friday (05/04).

They were apprehended in connection with the murder of Sandile Motsie (20), who was allegedly a member of the International Junior Portuguese (IJP) gang.

The violent actions of the VL gang started on Thursday (04/06) in New Stands in Thabong.

“Gang members started chasing Motsie, who was affiliated with the IJP gang. He allegedly ran into a friend’s house to seek refuge,” says Sgt. Mamello Mokhuoane, police spokesperson.

“Six gang members entered the house and allegedly stabbed him to death. They then fled the scene.”

A case of murder was opened for further investigation. The case was assigned to the ESP task team.

“Four of the six gang members were arrested at their homes in Thabong. Although the other two were in hiding, they were also tracked down and arrested,” says Mokhuoane.

“All six suspects appeared in the Welkom Magistrate’s Court on Monday (08/04), and have been remanded in custody.”

Thabong Cluster Commander, Maj. Gen. Apaphia Modise, issued a warning to those who are affiliated with heinous gang-related crimes.

“We will ensure that they face the might of the law.”
