Murder and robbery suspects hands himself over to Mpumalanga Hawks

Zola Martin Mnisi is charged with the murder of a Fidelity Security officer who died during a cash-in-transit heist in August.

A 29-year-old fugitive, Zola Martin Mnisi, handed himself over to the Mpumalanga Hawks yesterday. He had been hunted for allegedly committing murders and cash-in-transit (CIT) robberies.

The Hawks are also calling on Mpendulo Absima Hassane to hand himself over. He is also linked to a CIT heist that occurred in Malalane on August 11.

According to the provincial Hawks’ spokesperson, Captain Dineo Sekgotodi, Mnisi made his first appearance in the KaBokweni Magistrate’s Court on the same day he handed himself over.

He was remanded in custody for the murder of a Fidelity Security officer during a CIT heist in KaBokweni.

“The case was postponed to Thursday, at the same court. Mnisi will still appear in court for the Malelane case and one in White River. The appearance followed after Mnisi was circulated on social media platforms as a wanted suspect by the Hawks,” Sekgotodi says.

Mnisi and his co-accused, Hassane (31), were first linked to a CIT robbery in Malalane on August 11. Hassane is urged to do likewise and hand himself over to the police.
