Two men are to appear in the Wynberg Magistrates Court on Monday for the murder of 32-year-old police constable, Thembisa Ntlatywa, who was shot and robbed of her service pistol in front of a food take-away in Gugulethu earlier this month.

“Two men were taken in for questioning over the weekend after detectives followed-up on information obtained through investigation,” says police spokesperson, Superintendent Billy Jones.

The men were formally arrested and charged late on Sunday night.

“A 9mm firearm, with its serial number filed off, was also seized. The firearm will be sent to the forensics unit to establish whether it is the police issued firearm,” says Jones.

The suspects are facing charges of murder and robbery. The two men are aged 20 and 22 years-old and are both from Brown’s Farm, Nyanga.
