Four police officers have been arrested in connection with the killing of Mthokozisi Ntumba, the bystander who was shot dead amid protesting by Wits students last week.
The 35-year-old’s death caused a public uproar, with calls for those responsible to be apprehended.
The Independent Police Investigative Directorate (Ipid) said that the four were police officers from the public order policing unit.
However, the officers will appear at the Johannesburg Magistrate’s Court on Wednesday.
They are set to be charged with murder, three counts of attempted murder and defeating the end of justice.
“The four officers will appear at the Johannesburg magistrate’s court on Wednesday, March 17 2021, and they are facing charges of murder, three charges of attempted murder and defeating the end of justice,” said Ipid spokesperson Ndileka Cola.
