JOHANNESBURG - Gauteng Community Safety MEC Sizakele Nkosi-Malobane says despite having arrested suspects linked to Dumi Masilela's murder, they are looking for a final suspect to solidify their case.

The actor died earlier in August in a botched hijacking.

On Monday, three men appeared in court for having been found in possession of the car used in the hijacking, however, they have not been charged with the murder.

Nkosi-Malobane says a key suspect still needs to be arrested.

“There’s still one person that we’re looking for and that person plays a very important role in us being able to crack the case.”
