Four suspected gang murderers were arrested by members of the Thabong SAPS Detective Unit’s Serious Violent Crimes Component.

This follows the murder of 31-year-old Qaqane Mofokeng on Friday (08/01) at about 20:15.

The SAPS, in conjunction with the district Investigation Economic Stimulus Package (ESP) detectives, followed up information about a stabbed man at a local hospital on Saturday. A suspect was found and linked to the murder case.

An investigation led to the arrest of other three suspects in Thabong on Sunday.

It is reported that Mofokeng was attacked and stabbed by a number of males suspected to be Vatos Lagos (VL) gang members. He sustained wounds to his back and forehead. He was certified dead by paramedics on the scene.

“The motive for the attack seems to be revenge, as it is alleged that on 26 December the deceased was involved in the killing of one of the VL gangsters. He is also believed to be a member of the same criminal gang,” says Brig. Sam Makhele, spokesperson.

The four suspects (aged between 20 and 27) will be charged with murder. More suspects are expected to be arrested soon.
