Man arrested for wearing Army uniform and murder
One of the most wanted suspects in Philippi-East was arrested in the early hours of Tuesday wearing a full army uniform and carrying a 9mm pistol.
Siphenkosi Gwazekhaya, who is well-known by his street name Bhoyoyo, was nabbed during a midnight patrol in Umkhombe Crescent in Lower Crossroads.
He was walking in the street when the police stopped him at 1 am. Police spokesperson Bheki Xulu says: “Crime Prevention Unit members were focused on patrolling the area at midnight when they stopped and searched a man who was wearing the army uniform.
“During the body search police found a black star 9mm firearm with seven ammunitions.”When cops got a good look at his face they realised the man was known to them as Siphenkosi Gwazekhaya, 21, aka Bhoyoyo, who is wanted for murder and three attempted murder charges that took place in January in Lower Crossroads.
He allegedly shot dead a man in his 20s.
“Gwazekhaya has been involved in a lot of criminal activities in Philippi-East including robberies, car hijacking, and murder,” added Xulu. He says police are busy establishing whether the gun was legal or used in criminal activities.“We are doing further investigation regarding the firearm and it was taken for ballistic tests,” he says.
Xulu commended the police officers for arresting Bhoyoyo and said “the streets will be safer”.
“He will appear in Wynberg Magistrates’ Court in the course of the week for being in possession of a prohibited firearm and ammunition,” added Xulu
