Three men who have been arrested in connection with the attempted hijacking and murder of Dumi Masilela will appear in the Benoni Magistrate’s Court on Wednesday.
THREE suspects have been charged in connection with the murder of the late Rhythm City actor.
Gauteng Community Safety MEC Sizakele Nkosi-Malobane previously said the men couldn’t be charged earlier as the police needed to go through the process of getting ballistic results and having an ID parade.
The suspects are allegedly somehow connected with the Jeep that is believed to have been involved in the hijacking attempt.
It was reported that fingerprints had linked one of two men taken in by the police to the attempted hijacking of Masilela.
Masilela and a friend were sitting in his parked car in Tembisa, Ekurhuleni in August when a black Jeep approached them.
An occupant of the car fired a shot when Masilela tried to drive away. He was hit by the bullet and died later in hospital.
