SA Police Want Elvis Nyathi’s Widow To Identify Husband’s Killers

SA Police Want Elvis Nyathi’s Widow To Identify Husband’s Killers

The South African Police Service (SAPS) has asked Nomsa Tshuma, the widow of Elvis Nyathi, to return to South Africa to identify her husband’s suspected killers at an identification parade.

Nyathi was brutally murdered by an anti-immigrant vigilante group in Diepsloot, a slum area north of Johannesburg last month.

Seven of the fourteen men who were initially arrested in connection with the murder appeared at the Randburg Magistrate’s Court in South Africa two weeks ago.

The other seven suspects were released after police could not find conclusive evidence linking them to the crime.

The seven are facing charges to do with murder, attempted murder, kidnapping, robbery with aggravating circumstances, assault with intent to do grievous bodily harm and extortion.

An MRP delegation who met with Zimbabwe’s Ambassador to South Africa, David Hamadziripi in Pretoria revealed that Tshuma was needed in South Africa.

MRP National Spokesperson, Velile Moyo, told CITE that they had asked Hamadziripi and the Government to be involved in the process so that Tshuma’s safety was guaranteed. Said Moyo:

She is still there in Zimbabwe but when the suspects were arrested by the police there was a need for identification or a parade to prove that they are the ones that did that so.

After the identification, they then take her back again to Beitbridge.

I think that was the request police had said and is something that has to be considered.

I’m not sure if the family has considered that.

Nyathi was dragged by a mob from his home for not having a passport and beaten up. The vigilantes then stoned him before setting him on fire.

His charred remains were repatriated and buried in Bulawayo. He left behind Tshuma and their four children.

It depends with what makes her feel better, if it was me, forgiveness is the way to go... They should find someone else from the mob or from the Dudula movement not the widow.. let her rest

Could be hard for her to identify.... Was she standing aside, watching her husband getting burnt to ashes? I doubt

It's clear SAPS are not willing to let justice take it's course, this was a highly public, simple and procedural inquiries by police in that neighborhood will pinpoint the culprits in Nyathi's murder. There can never be enough protection for Nyathi's wife, considering that Dudula is a movement with a big network of people who can set her up at any given place and time. South Africa is a dangerous place infested with all sort of thugs in every nook and cranny.

The late Elvis Nyathi's widow must cooperate with Police in South Africa if she wants that those who killed her husband are punished. Identification parade is a very important means of investigations in such cases.
