A man is currently in police custody undergoing questioning in relation to the shooting death of star entertainer, Dumi Masilela, as well as for other crimes.
Information disclosed by officials to TshishaLIVE revealed that the suspect was arrested last week because Police believe he is connected to the murder of the “Shona Phansi“ star and other crimes. Police spokesperson, Lungelo Dlamini disclosed further:
“He has been linked to other crimes and it is believed he is linked to the Dumi case. Investigations are ongoing,” He said.
Initially, Ekurhuleni Executive Mayor, Mzwandile Masina disclosed at Dumi Masilela‘s funeral on Saturday that police had arrested suspects in connection with the murder.
However, security agents have now downplayed this and confirmed that only one person is in custody and investigations are ongoing to unravel the true circumstances behind the gruesome murder.
The multi-talented actor, singer and soccer player best-known for playing “Sifiso Ngema” on Rhythm City (TV series) was born on 31 May, 1988 in Kempton Park, Gauteng. Unfortunately, his shining light and star was cut short after being shot on 3 August, 2017.
Dumi Masilela was with a friend and had parked somewhere in Tembisa when a black jeep approached his car. He tried to drive away, but was shot once.
Even though he was still conscious and managed to drive halfway to Hospital where he underwent surgery, he was declared dead five hours later.
