Two suspects have been arrested in connection with the murder of Pofadder hotelier Leon Brits.
Police spokesperson Brigadier Mohale Ramatseba said a 37-year-old was arrested in Piketberg in the Western Cape, and a 34-year-old suspect was arrested in Kathu.
Brits owned a hotel in Pofadder, and was stabbed to death on 7 October. His body was found floating in a swimming pool.
Brits had apparently told his brother that some staff members were stealing from the hotel kitchen.
A family friend said it looked as though Brits was strangled with a dog chain and dragged to the pool.
Northern Cape FF Plus leader Wynand Boshoff said the murder had shocked the mostly peaceful region.
A team, including Provincial Organised Crime, the Directorate for Priority Crime Investigation (Hawks) and Pofadder and Springbok detectives arrested the two suspects.
They are expected to appear in court on Monday.
