Hawks Dispel Rumours of Politicians

Pretoria – The Directorate for Priority Crime Investigation is concerned with the number of speculations making rounds about the so called imminent arrests of political leaders in the Wandile Bozwana murder case.

The information has unfortunately been taken advantage by unscrupulous people whose interest is to bring confusion and fear.

The National Head of the DPCI Lieutenant General Mthandazo Ntlemeza has noted for some time that many people have been speculating on the matters relating to the murder of Bozwana.  Others have even dangerously ventured into suggesting that some businessmen and politicians were masterminds behind Bozwana’s murder.

As the Hawks and other law enforcement agencies charged with the responsibility to safeguard rule of law, we want to assure all South Africans that we do our work without fear, favour or hesitation.  No amount of insinuations, perceptions and deceptions will inform or influence our work.  We have already recorded commendable progress on this matter.

The DPCI would like to urge all and sundry to stop making dangerous and uninformed speculations in media platforms clearly as a way of influencing our work in one way or another. We remain confident that we will secure successful prosecution and convictions on this matter and the public will accordingly be informed.  In this regard, we want to thank everyone who has worked and cooperated with us to secure the four arrests.

No further comments will be made on the matter.
