“There are several things that we believe could give the right person. The cellular [phone] of the young man was found."

Further arrests can be expected.

“We’ve ordered the police to say, there were of these several people, they must be found and they must be hunted and found, it doesn’t matter how they are found or where they are found but police will have to bring them dead or alive and make sure those people get punished,” Cele said.
