A 28-year-old woman was arrested in connectionp with the murder of Sergeant Mandlenkosi Happy Thwala, a 45-year-old police officer from Mpumalanga. She has been kept in jail.
Last week, a neighbor in Pienaar found Thwala dead in his home at Gedlembane.
Zanele Mkhonto, who is 28 years old, was arrested on Wednesday and went to court on Thursday.
The Mpumalanga Hawks, a spokesman for the specialized law enforcement unit, said that the specialized law enforcement unit is now looking into how the police officer was killed in a brutal way.
“The suspect, Zanele Mkhonto, who is 28 years old, was taken into custody and went to court on Wednesday, August 10,” said Sekgotodi.
She was put back in jail, and the case will be sent to the Kabokweni Magistrate’s Court until August 12 so that she can ask for legal help and bail.
Major General Zodwa Mokoena, who is in charge of the Hawks in Mpumalanga, has asked the community to work with the police by telling them anything that might help them solve the murder.
Warrant Officer Albert de Lange is the person in charge of the investigation. He can be reached at 071 481 2815.

Last week, police in Mpumalanga said that a worried neighbor found Thwala’s body.
“According to reports, police were called to a scene in Pienaar where a neighbor said she got a call from the member’s mother asking her to check on her son because she thinks he may have been killed,” said Mpumalanga police spokesperson Brigadier Selvy Mohlala.
When the police got there, they found him lying still in his bed with gunshot wounds that could be seen. He was allegedly shot five times, twice in the head and three times in his upper body, with his service pistol.
Two cartridges were also found on the floor. His green Volkswagen Polo Classic with the license plate DSV 112 MP, his service gun, and his cellphone were all missing, but they were later found in the bushes. “A murder case with an additional robbery charge has been opened,” Mohlala said.
