9 arrested for murder of Ahmed Kathrada’s nephew and son

Nine people have been arrested for the murder of struggle stalwart Ahmed Kathrada’s nephew and his son.

Yunus Kathrada (65) and his 28-year-old son Moulana Ahmed Kathrada were killed by armed suspects during an apparent house robbery in the North West last Thursday.

Police say a task team made seven arrests in Schweizer-Reneke and two in Taung this week.

The police’s Adele Myburg says they also seized two vehicles and a firearm that may be linked to the murder.

“These nine suspects are aged between 18 and 60. They will be appearing in the Schweizer-Reneke Magistrates Court on 7 November. They are facing two charges of murder as well as one count of attempted robbery.”
