JOHANNESBURG - Controversial Johannesburg businessman and millionaire Zunaid Moti is due to hand himself over to the police on Tuesday and is expected to appear in the Brits Magistrate's Court immediately after.

While Moti denies any wrongdoing, police have linked him to a North West case involving an alleged syndicate responsible for extortion, robbery and an attempted murder.

Police said Moti is wanted for allegedly orchestrating a hit on a Brits businessman last year.

Eyewitness News revealed on Monday that another suspect was arrested on Sunday in connection with the investigation.

Moti vowed to prove his innocence through the courts.

On Tuesday, he is expected to take the first step by handing himself over at the Hartbeespoort Dam Police Station.

The businessman will then appear in court and is likely to launch a bail application to secure his freedom.

On Monday, Moti issued another statement in which he revealed that the investigating officer in the case was replaced due to irregularities and that he had taken legal action against his accusers.

Four men, including twin brothers, were arrested in connection with the case in May, while a fifth was apprehended on Sunday evening.
