Hijacking and kidnapping suspects apprehended:
The Sedibeng SAPS arrested four suspects in connection with the hijacking and kidnapping of a principal and a teacher at the Lakeside High School on the 24th of November. Last week Wednesday, after a thorough investigation, the 36-year-old Treasurer General of the School Governing Body (SGB), her boyfriend and 2 other suspects were arrested for hijacking, kidnapping, robbery and possession of an unlicensed firearm and ammunition.
Sedibeng Cluster Police Spokesperson, Sergeant Shaan Motsapi, said new furniture was seized from the SGB’s house that she bought on the 25th of November, Black Friday. This is after the suspect failed to explain the huge amount of money in her bank account. At the scene, an unlicensed firearm, live ammunition, and a motor vehicle used for the commission of the crime were recovered.
Seargent Motsapi said the four suspects appeared briefly before the Vereeniging Magistrate Court and the suspects remain in custody for their bail application.
