Hunt after suspect skips court

The manhunt for Makhulu Sipho Skhosana has been launched after he failed to appear in court on two occasions.

The Loate police have launched a manhunt for a man who skipped court hearings recently.

Makhulu Sipho Skhosana (aka Lefty), facing a charge of conspiracy to commit murder, had failed to appear in court on the last two occasions. He was out on bail.

Police spokesperson Captain Samuel Sebola said the warrant for Skhosana’s arrest was issued in May.

“During his third trial on 30 May he failed to appear in court then the magistrate issued a warrant for his arrest. The case was postponed to 14 July but the accused still failed to attend court. The suspect is still at large,” said Sebola.

Any person who might have information about Skhosana’s whereabouts can contact Detective Constable Martin Nyathi on 083-962-0442 or the Loate police on 012-797-7800.
