Mashakeni Masingita (23) is sought by Protea Glen local police for brutally murdering a 37 year old woman in extension 13 on 18 November 2018. Police say the suspect shot the deceased through an open bedroom window causing her to die on the scene.
Masingita was arrested for murder and appeared in court where bail was granted to him afterwards. He was expected to make his next appearance in court but failed to do so when the time came.
The police issued a warrant of arrest when they couldn’t locate his whereabouts and it is believed that he might be hiding out in Limpopo.
Gauteng News spoke to Detective Warrant Officer Ramotlou who elaborated on the situation. “We are still searching for the suspect and a warrant of arrest has been issued against him. We were contacted by his family who informed us that he was seen at a taxi rank in Tzaneen, Limpopo earlier this year.
Unfortunately by the time police arrived, at the given location, the suspect had already fled. We are currently working with the police from Limpopo to find the suspect and we hope the community will also assist us in apprehending him”, said Ramotlou.
