The Directorate for Priority Crime Investigation dispelled the rumors that politicians are involved in Bozwana’s murder stating that it is concerned with the number of speculations making rounds about the so-called imminent arrests of political leaders in the Wandile Bozwana murder case.
Hawks called on South Africans to stop trying to influence their work by making dangerous and uninformed speculations on media platforms.
In a media statement, the Priority Crime Investigation establishment related that its National Head – Lieutenant General Mthandazo Ntlemeza has noted for some time that South Africans have been speculating on the matters relating to the murder of Bozwana.
“Others have even dangerously ventured into suggesting that some businessmen and politicians were the masterminds behind Bozwana’s murder.
As the Hawks and other law enforcement agencies charged with the responsibility to safeguard rule of law, we want to assure all South Africans that we do our work without fear, favor or hesitation.
No amount of insinuations, perceptions and deceptions will inform or influence our work. We have already recorded commendable progress on this matter. We remain confident that we will secure successful prosecution and convictions on this matter and the public will accordingly be informed.
In this regard, we want to thank everyone who has worked and cooperated with us to secure the four arrests. No further comments will be made on the matter,” Hawks stated.
In another statement, Hawks refuted circulating report about an ongoing investigation against Cabinet Ministers.
The statement said: “…media reports published in the Sunday Times regarding apparent filing of corruption charges against three ministers and the Gupta family” is baseless and malicious.
And, ” are designed and clearly aimed at casting denunciations on the three ministers – Minister of Public Enterprises Lynne Brown, Minister of Trade and Industry Rob Davies and Minister of Defence Nosiviwe Mapisa-Nqakula.”
Hawks distanced itself from the report which it described as a “desperate attempt to instill fear, instability and distrust.”
But then, assured South Africans that it will work to ensure all national priority crimes are impartially dealt with without fear, favor, bias or prejudice.
