Zandspruit mob attack: Gauteng police appeal for help in tracing 2 suspects

Gauteng police are appealing for information that will help them arrest two more suspects linked to the Zandspruit mob attack incident last month.

Eight young men were killed when they were attacked in the northern Johannesburg township after they were accused of terrorizing the community.

A ninth victim survived the attack and has since been discharged from the hospital and is recovering from home.

Gauteng police spokesperson Kay Makhubela said they are looking for Mali Dube and Joshua Given Mobodze who were last since shortly after the incident.

“Since the incident happened, the two wanted people have not been seen in Zandspruit. Police are calling for anyone who might have seen those two people to contact the nearest police station, or crime stop on 086000 10111 or download the MySAPS app and give information without mentioning your name.”

Six other people alleged to have been involved in the attack are expected back in court on 23 June 2021 after their case was postponed.

Tebogo Mabula, Mziwamangware Witbooi, Njabulo Zwane, Phakiswa Tsengiwe, Maxwell Mpofu, and Klaas Masemola appeared in the Roodepoort Magistrates Court on Wednesday on charges of murder, attempted murder, and kidnapping.
