WESTERN CAPE - An intensive investigation into the circumstances of a double murder on Wednesday in Citrusdal which left two men aged 34 and 43 fatally wounded on a bus while transporting farm workers, led to the arrest of four suspects.

Last night members of Citrusdal police, Provincial Detectives and the Provincial Integrated Task Team conducted a joint tracing operation for the suspects in the area after an investigation implicated them in the attack. The suspects aged between 27 and 41 who are linked to a taxi organisation in the area are expected to make their court appearances in Clanwilliam on Monday, where bail will be opposed.

The Provincial Commissioner of the Western Cape police, Lt Gen Thembisile Patekile commended the investigators and arresting officers for the speedy arrests. He warned that violence associated with the transport industry in this province will not be tolerated and perpetrators of the law can expect to see their day in court.
