KZN man seven years off the grid rearrested on two murder charges


Sifiso Nxumalo was arrested in Gauteng on Saturday after being on the run for seven years.

KwaZulu-Natal police have apprehended a man who has gone off the grid for seven years after he was granted bail while on murder charges.

On Monday, Sifiso Nxumalo (31) came before the Nquthu Magistrate’s Court on two charges relating to murder back in 2013.

After Nxumalo was granted bail for the murder of Mavela Ncube who was stabbed at a tavern in Mondlo, in northern KZN, it was reported that he allegedly stabbed someone else – Ali Narsill, at a shop in the same area, before he later disappeared from the province.

The information was received that he was seen in Gauteng, where he was hiding. He was arrested on October 17 with the assistance of Ivory Park police officers. He was brought to Mondlo SAPS for detention,” said police spokesperson Col Thembeka Mbele.

Nxumalo will come back before the court on October 28 in a bid to tender bail application.
