Tsireledzo Wanga Mphaphuli, age 20, was in his first year at Varsity College when he passed away.
His murderers requested transportation between Garsfontein and Eersterust.
On 16 December 2022, when they stopped in Eersterust, they robbed and murdered the Bolt driver on George Hood Avenue.
A community member alerted Garsfontein Station Commander Colonel Kerwin Solomons about one of the suspects, according to Eersterust Police Spokesperson Sergeant Sam Shibambo.
Additionally, the slain Bolt driver was a “kind and bubbly” law student.
The caller alerted Solomons that the man wanted in connection with the murder of a Bolt driver resides in Eersterust, Nantes.
Shibambo reported that Solomons and other Eersterust police officers raced to the Kanna Avenue address and apprehended the culprit.
“During a search of the suspect’s room, police discovered the deceased driver’s belongings,” Shibambo stated.
According to him, the suspect cooperated with authorities and supplied additional information.
The cops are convinced they will soon apprehend his remaining collaborators.
