Police Minister Fikile Mbalula has confirmed the arrest of a suspect who killed a woman and his brother in Alexander early last week.
25-year-old Tumi and 23-year-old Tshepo Sefela were shot and killed by Tumi’s boyfriend in Alexandra last week on Sunday.
It is understood that the suspect handed himself over the Alexandra Police Station.
Reports say Tumi opened a case of abuse against him and got a protection order but later withdrew them.
Last week, Mbalula urged officers to be vigilant when dealing with women who claim to be victims of abuse and then later want to withdraw the cases.
