Three suspects believed to be responsible for the murder of Lieutenant Colonel Jabulani Ndawonde were killed in a shootout with police on Monday. A fourth suspect remains at large.
Three of the four suspects believed to be involved in the armed robbery and murder of Lieutenant Colonel Jabulani Ndawonde in May were fatally wounded in a shootout with members of the law on Monday, 14 June.
Unfortunately, two dogs from the Pietermaritzburg K9 unit were killed during the gun battle between police and the suspects.
LIEUTENANT COLONEL NDAWONDE MURDERED
Ndawonde – who was the acting station commander of Ndwandwe SAPS – was killed near the Bhamshela taxi rank on 24 May. He was off-duty and on his way home, travelling in a marked state vehicle, when he was ambushed by unknown attackers and shot dead. Ndawonde’s vehicle crashed into a fence next to the R614 road after the shooting.
“Lieutenant Colonel Ndawonde sustained multiple gunshot wounds and his 9mm service pistol and an R5 sutomatic rifle were taken by the suspects,” said Hawks spokesperson Colonel Katlego Mogale.
A case of murder and armed robbery was opened and allocated to the Durban Hawks for further investigation.
INTELLIGENCE LED TO SHOOTOUT WITH NDAWONDE MURDER SUSPECTS
The Hawks received intelligence information pertaining to the whereabouts of the suspects involved in Ndawonde’s murder – this led to the shootout that took place on Monday. The suspects were travelling in a Maroon Jeep, which matched the description police were given, from Maqongqo toward Pietermaritzburg.
A multidisciplinary team – made up of members from Hawks Serious Organised Crime Durban, Crime Intelligence, Pietermaritzburg K9 and Tactical Response Team – stopped the jeep and the suspects responded with gunfire.
“Two suspects jumped out of the vehicle and disappeared in the nearby bushes whilst the other two tried to drive back to Maqongqo but unfortunately the vehicle went down a ditch,” said Mogale. “Closer inspection revealed that the suspect driver had been fatally wounded.”
BLOOD TRAIL THROUGH SUGAR CANE, K9s KILLED
One of the wounded suspects left a trail of blood as he and an accomplice tried to escape via the nearby sugar cane fields. “Due to the complex terrain, assistance of the Pietermaritzburg K9 was enlisted,” said Mogale.
A K9 police officer and his dog, Shaka, entered the field and followed the trail left by the suspects. Unfortunately, Shaka was shot and killed by one of the suspects he located – the suspect also let off shots at the members, who fatally wounded him when they returned fire.
“Another K9 member with a dog, Simba, joined the team in locating the third suspect,” said Mogale. “Simba engaged the suspect but unfortunately was fatally wounded and so was the suspect.”
A third K9 unit dog, Duke, was injured by the fourth suspect but fortunately it survived. “The suspect shot Duke and managed to flee deeper into the dense bushes,” said Mogale. Duke was airlifted to hospital for urgent medical care and is recovering.
The fourth suspect remains at large.
JUSTICE FOR THE NDAWONDE FAMILY
The provincial Head of the Hawks in KwaZulu-Natal, Major General Lesetja Senona, praised the multidisciplinary team for ensuring that justice was brought to the Ndawonde family and offered his condolences to the K9 Pietermaritzburg unit for the losses suffered.
“We shall continue to ensure that communities are protected from these criminals and justice prevails,” said Senona.
The multidisciplinary team recovered four unlicensed weapons – including a R4 rifle, a R5 rifle and two 9mm pistols – along with a dashboard blue light and a box of ammunition. Mogale said 13 counts of attempted murder, possession of an unlicensed firearm and ammunition, malicious damage to property and inquest dockets have been opened for investigation.
TWO OF THE DECEASED INVOLVED IN ‘MASSACRE’
After the incident, police discovered that two of the deceased suspects were allegedly involved in the “massacre” of six people in Marianhill, KwaZulu-Natal in 2017.
The pair were found guilty of five counts of murder and one attempted murder by the Durban High Court on 26 March 2021 but they escaped from the court holding cells during the recess after they were found guilty.
TOKYO—To say it’s an eventful time in the life of Michael Woods would be an understatement. It was a little more than a week ago that the 34-year-old professional cyclist from Ottawa was ensconced in a breakthrough performance in his second Tour de France, where he briefly wore the vaunted polka-dot jersey as the race’s top climber.And if things go according to plan, Woods and his wife Elly are only a few days away from welcoming their second child. As Woods rolled up to the start line of Saturday’s Olympic road race, he did so carrying the knowledge that Elly — back in the couple’s home base of Andorra — was in labour and 4.5 centimetres dilated, even if Woods was hoping the baby would hold off on arriving until he gets back from the Olympics on Monday.Pile the fatigue...
Astrology by July 1’s Last Quarter Moon in Aries is urging us to release all the negativity in our lives. The same day, Mars, who’s in Leo, opposes Saturn, who’s retrograde in Aquarius, pushing us to dominate others (or vice versa). Mars squares Uranus, who’s in Taurus, on July 3 and urges us to break free from the constraints holding us back. The Cancer Sun aspects Uranus on July 5th, allowing us to embrace our unique sentiments. Venus, who’s in Leo, connects with the Nodes of Destiny on July 5th which brings romance to our lives. The caveat is that the next day, Venus and Saturn retrograde oppose each other making us feel undervalued — a sentiment that will...
Two meetings to look at on Tuesday, with my focus at Tabcorp Park Melton and Tabcorp Park Menangle. Down below is best bets for the respective programs.

Manchester United legend Andy Cole has spoken about Jadon Sancho and what he is expected to bring to Ole Gunnar Solskjaer’s team. After a long-winded transfer saga, on Friday in a £73million deal. The former Manchester City youth team player enjoyed a brilliant spell at Borussia Dortmund before moving to the red side of Manchester, contributing towards 114 goals in 137 games for the Bundesliga outfit. Speaking to MUTV, Cole has said what he believes can bring to the side: “Yeah, a quality young player [Sancho]. He’ll bring a lot to Man United, he’ll bring spark, a lot of attacking flair,” he said. “He could say he’s a bit of an old fashioned winger. He’ll get crosses in, create chances and he’ll score chances himself. I think Sancho as...

Queensland Premier Annastacia Palaszczuk says the 2032 Brisbane Olympics – confirmed yesterday – will be a chance to welcome people from the entire Australasian region, provided the border with New Zealand is open at that particular time. “This is our chance to open our arms to people from every corner of the travel bubble likely to still be in place by 2032,” Palaszczuk said. “We will be welcoming athletes from far flung places like Auckland, Wellington, Melbourne, Hobart, Sydney – if the border is open by then – Cairns, Perth. Actually, probably not Perth, who are we kidding”. She said, all going well, athletes from Singapore may also be able to compete. “The Olympic spirt knows no boundaries. But of course I mean that in a strictly metaphorical sense....
It’s the scenario no parent ever wants to experience. A baby that’s been perfectly healthy seems to stop breathing for….what seems like forever. In addition, he looks a little blue. 911 is called; perhaps the parents know CPR and begin that activity. In any case, by the time emergency medical help arrives, the baby looks perfectly fine. He’s transferred to the hospital—probably one with a specialized pediatric unit. Multiple tests fail to show anything wrong, and he continues to look healthy. The baby’s been sent home on a monitor. At home monitor goes off regularly, but the baby looks fine every time he’s checked. In fact, they’ve seen it go off when they’ve been looking right at the baby, who’s sleeping and breathing comfortably at the moment. In frustration, the parents...

The Walking Dead and Death Stranding star Norman Reedus would still like to play Ghost Rider in the MCU. Besides being known for starring in AMC’s long-running The Walking Dead series and Hideo Kojima’s Death Stranding, Norman Reedus has his eyes set on the Marvel Cinematic Universe. An avid motorcycle enthusiast, Reedus has continuously expressed casual interest in the role of Ghost Rider throughout the past few years. While The Walking Dead is calling it curtains soon with its eleventh season, Reedus is set to reprise his role as Daryl Dixon in a spin-off series. Despite still holding onto his old job, Reedus is already looking forward to securing future roles, including those vacant in the MCU.
