The South African Police Service (SAPS) is offering up to R50 000 to any member of the public who can provide information that could help the police track down the 30-year-old Zwelibanzi Kidwell Zungu and missing Nandi Mbizane.
Police jointly with Crime Line released Zungu’s picture to the media earlier this week in a bid to arrest Zungu in connection with the disappearance of a 27-year-old Nandi Mbizane from Centurion.
“We are offering up to R50 000 to anybody with information that could lead to Zungu’s arrest. There is also a reward for information on Mbizane's whereabouts,” said Gauteng police spokesman, Brigadier Neville Malila.
"We believe Zungu can help us in our investigation and it’s therefore imperative that we find him as soon as possible. We know the public can assist,” said Malila.
According to police Mbizane went missing from her Centurion home in early March and was last seen in the presence of Zungu and her current boyfriend. Both men were arrested in connection with her disappearance, but were later released.
A close friend of Mbizane reported her missing after she failed to answer her phone and she also didn’t show up for work. Her flat was found in disarray and police reportedly found blood on the scene.
Malila said that Zungu’s last known address is Vosloorus, Extention 3 on the East Rand.
Head of Crime Line, Yusuf Abramjee urged the public to pass on information regarding the pair’s whereabouts to Crime Line’s 32211 SMS number or by contacting Crime Stop on 08600 10111.
“Crime Line’s SMS service is 100% anonymous, it is therefore important for informers to include their telephone number in the tip-off if they want to qualify for the reward. We pride ourselves in protecting the identify of our tipsters, so if you don’t include your contact details you will not stand in line for the reward if your information should lead police to Zungu or Mbizane,” said Abramjee.
