KZN taxi boss linked to Bozwana's killing

A KwaZulu-Natal taxi boss is being sought by the Hawks in connection with assassination of businessman Wandile Bozwana.

Hawks spokesman Brigadier Hangwani Mulaudzi said their investigation since Bonzwana's execution-style murder on October 2 2015, had linked Senzo Mncube to the man that pulled the trigger.

He said Mncube, who moves between Gauteng and KwaZulu-Natal, owns several taxis which are not registered under his real name.

"He is a very known man in KZN and maintains ties in Ulundi, Nongoma, Mahlabathini and Johannesburg. He is armed and dangerous," warned Mulaudzi yesterday.

 

A warrant of arrest has been issued against Mncube.

Bozwana, a North West businessman, was killed in a hail of bullets on the Garsfontein Road exit from the N1 highway in Pretoria. He was shot nine times and died at Unitas Hospital later.

The shooting was believed to be a hit as he was involved in controversial tenders with North West government. He also spoke openly about government corruption in that province.

Bozwana's company, Tsoga Developers, was embroiled in a court case with the North West government after the government took Tsoga to the Constitutional Court over the building of a hospital in Brits.

Four men Sipho Hudla, 35, Robert Motapa, 43, Bonginkosi Khumalo, 37, and Vusi Mathibela, 33, were subsequently arrested for the murder.

Mathibela got a R50000 bail while the other three are still behind bars.

Bozwana's family said yesterday that they were disappointed that the police have kept them in the dark about their investigations.

"We did not have a clue that they (police) were looking for another suspect whose name they even know.

"They are not updating us on their investigations as well as the case. It's very disappointing," said Bozwana's elder brother Benedict
