A third person has been arrested in connection with the murder of an induna in Kranskop, KwaZulu-Natal police said on Monday.

He was allegedly found in possession of a 9mm pistol, Major Thulani Zwane said. An unlicensed 9mm pistol suspected to have been used to kill the induna was recovered when the first two suspects were arrested on Saturday.

The three would appear in the Kranskop Magistrate’s Court on Wednesday on charges of murder and possession of unlicensed firearms. The weapons would be sent for ballistic tests to establish if they were used in any other crimes.

Induna Bhekithemba Dlezakhe Gcwabaza was shot dead in his home on Wednesday. The motive for his killing was not yet known.
