Five people will attend the Alice Magistrates Court concerning the murders of Fort Hare University staff members. As reported by Eyewitness News, police arrested the suspects at the weekend for killing the institution’s fleet manager, Petrus Roets, and the vice chancellor’s bodyguard, Mboneli Vesele. Vesele was shot dead in January, and the suspects allegedly killed Roets in a suspected hit in March last year.
The police’s Athlenda Mathe said they would also receive charges of attempted murder and corruption at the university, which suffers from serious mismanagement. “The management of the South African Police Service led by both the Minister of Police, General Bheki Cele, and the National Commissioner of the SAPS, General Fannie Masemola, will attend the court proceedings of five suspects that have been arrested for a number of charges including the murder and attempted murder of employees attached to the University of Fort Hare.”
