POTCHEFSTROOM: 15 May 2022: Paul Nguzo Ndamoyi (39) was arrested this week in Extension 13, Jouberton Location, by the Provincial Anti-gang Unit during an intelligence driven operation, for the alleged murder of Thabo Ntsie (43).

It is alleged that earlier in March 2022,  Ntsie was walking from a tavern, accompanied by his friends, when they met Ndamoyi. The latter allegedly shot Ntsie with a rifle and fled from the scene.  The victim was rushed to a local hospital where he was declared dead on arrival.

During Ndamoyi’s arrest, his house was searched and a magazine and ammunition were found. Thus, he was further charged for unlawful possession of ammunition. Both the victim and suspect are alleged to be members of the same gang commonly known as Al Qaeda.

Ndamoyi appeared before the Klerksdorp Magistrates' Court on Wednesday, 11 May 2022, on charges of murder and unlawful possession of ammunition.  He was remanded in custody until Wednesday, 18 May 2022, for a formal bail application.
