• One of the accused, Sibusiso Thabethe, a self-proclaimed sangoma, fooled police in 2014 into believing he drowned. Police launched a massive search and rescue operation. He was arrested for attempted murder, kidnapping and possession of an unlicensed firearm and ammunition, but was only charged for having an unlicensed firearm.
