Bail application in Umgeni Park businessman’s murder postponed

Four of the six suspects are teenagers, some believed to still be in school.

THE bail application for the accused allegedly involved in the murder of Durban North art dealer, Alan Gordon, was postponed due to two of the accused’s legal representatives not being ready to proceed.

Among the six suspects are four teenagers – Mvelo Hlambisa (18), Mluleki Alex Gwala (19), Nkululeko Mpanza (18) and Mnqobi Hoboyi (18). They appeared with Nkanyiso Mathenjwa (27) and Siphesihle Vilakazi (22).

It is alleged that the accused murdered, burnt and dumped Gordon’s body in Ndwedwe at the beginning of March.

Gordon’s brother, Brian, told Northglen News last week that his hope is that the suspects are not granted bail.

Brian filed a missing persons report when his father called him in a panic saying he had not heard from Alan for a few days which was not the norm.

Alan was last seen at his Umgeni Park home on March 8. His body was recovered on March 10.

“Money to the sum of R120 000 was missing from my brother’s account. His death has left a huge void in our lives, especially for my elderly father whom Alan visited and checked in with every day,” said Brian.

He commended Greenwood Park SAPS for making a swift arrest following his brother’s disappearance.
