Voster Netshiongolo was arrested on 1 September for murder as an accessory after the fact, defeating the ends of justice and being in possession of prohibited ammunition.
Netshiongolo is one of three police officers arrested for the murder of a teenager with Down’s syndrome in Eldorado Park.
Suspect one and two – Simon “Scorpion” Ndyalvane and Caylene Whiteboy – were arrested on 28 August. They are being charged with murder, discharging a firearm in public, possession of ammunition and defeating the administration of justice.
The murder resulted in intense social unrest in Eldorado Park, with residents calling for a complete overhaul of police in the area. Stun grenades and rubber bullets had to be used to disperse angry crowds.
