SAPS spokesperson Lieutenant Colonel Mavela Masondo confirmed that a murder case was being investigated after Sicelubuhle Moyo and William Dubethe were shot and killed outside the Randburg Magistrates’ Court.

He said the victims, who were certified dead at the scene, were shot as they were approaching the court building.

The four police officers are now being treated as suspects in connection with the double murder case.

According to TimesLive, Moyo and her husband were confronted by a gunman who leapt out of a Mercedes-Benz before opening fire.

A manhunt is underway for the shooter and his accomplice(s).

The victims were scheduled to be cross-examined last week after recently giving evidence.

Zimbo Witnesses Murdered at Randburg Court House

It is reported that Moyo was the complainant in a 2018 police brutality case and was due to testify against four male police officers identified as Moleke Makgatho, Katudi Masemane, Sylvester Chuene, and Mariri Mashupe last Wednesday.

South African media reports allege that despite the couple being murdered, the case against the four police officers who allegedly tortured Moyo in 2018 continued in court.

The officers were arrested by the Independent Police Investigative Directorate (IPID) in 2020, two years after Moyo opened a case of torture against them.

According to the charge sheet, the officers were questioning Moyo in relation to a robbery at a house in Midrand where she was employed as a domestic worker at the time.

The officers allegedly tied Moyo to a table by her ankles, waist, and hands, covered her face with a cloth, and forced water into her mouth and nose as a means to extract information from her.

When the case was heard, the State called the investigating officer in the shooting, Lt-Col Andile Mankayi from the Gauteng provincial police team to the witness box in support of an urgent application.

The application was for the four officers, from the Midrand police station, to hand in their cellphones and weapons.

They were also asked to agree to gunpowder residue tests on their bodies and guns. The matter was adjourned for defence lawyers to consult them.
