SA Police Arrest 14 For Elvis Nyathi Murder1 year ago
Fourteen (14) suspects have been arrested in connection with the murder of Zimbabwean national Elvis Nyathi in South Africa on 6 April.
eNCA reported that the fourteen suspects are appearing in court on Tuesday. However, the names of the suspects have not been revealed.
Nyathi was laid to rest at Umvutcha cemetery in Bulawayo on Saturday.
Meanwhile, South Africa’s second-largest opposition party, EFF, on Monday asked for forgiveness from Zimbabweans on behalf of his country for the murder of Nyathi. EFF said in a statement:
The independence anniversary comes at a time of heightened Afrophobia that resulted in the violent and merciless killing of a gardener, Elvis Nyathi, who was accused of stealing jobs, gardening deemed a stolen job.
On this day, we call upon the people of Zimbabwe and the rest of Africa to forgive South Africa and its people for the misdemeanours and criminality of a few, misled by the lack of ubuntu, to hate Africans in Africa.
