Police have made a breakthrough in the murder case of Limpopo department of transport deputy director Marks Rambau following the arrest of two suspects, reports Review Online.

Rambau was killed in Flora Park on Tuesday, 15 January, and his partially burnt body was found dumped next to the Peter Mokaba Stadium. A R50,000 reward was offered for information that could lead to the crime being solved.

According to police spokesperson Brigadier Motlafela Mojapelo, the first to be arrested was a 24-year-old woman from Seshego, who was arrested on Friday night at a hotel in Polokwane.

The second suspect, a Nigerian man (27), was arrested in the early hours of Saturday morning at his rented house in Flora Park, Polokwane.

“The vehicles, a Jeep Wrangler and VW Polo, were recovered at two different places in Polokwane,” Mojapelo confirmed.

The provincial commissioner of the South African Police Service in Limpopo, Lieutenant-General Nneke Ledwaba, has commended investigators for their meticulous efforts that led to the arrest of the suspects. He further thanked members of the public for providing valuable information that greatly assisted the police in the investigation.

“Both suspects will be profiled to establish if they are involved in other crimes and they will appear in the Polokwane Magistrate’s Court on Monday on charges of murder, carjacking, housebreaking, theft and defeating the ends of justice,” Mojapelo concluded.
