Zonke Magxwalisa (18), Eunice Phevouka (56), AviweMagxwalisa (25), Fudiswa Magxwalisa (55), Pesina Jabeni (67), Thuso Nokwane (36) and Bulela Magxwalisa (25), are being charged for possession of illegal firearms, possession of ammunition and possession of the stolen property.

The eighth suspect, a minor, was released under the care of the elderly sister, shortly after their arrest on 13 January 2023.

According to police reports, a tip-off from members of the public was received and acted upon, leading them to a house in Extension 14 in Jouberton. The report revealed that upon police’s arrival at the house, they found eight suspects (five females and three males),” said NPA spokesperson Henry Mamothame.

Mamothame confirmed police found a slaughtered cow at the back of the house and the suspects could also not account for it.

Meanwhile, the released minor is expected to remain under the care of her older sister until the matter is completed.

The matter has been postponed to 24 January 2023 by the Klerksdorp Magistrates’ Court for verification of their addresses and profiling.

The seven suspects, excluding the minor are expected to remain in police custody until their next court appearance and to register a formal bail application.
