Police in South Africa say they have arrested four suspects in connection with the murder of Mandla latshwayo, a popular DJ and former actor in a local TV series, Generations.

TimesLive has quoted Police Boss Khomotso Phahlane saying that the suspects are also linked to the murder of another man killed in the same incident on Sunday night.

Mr Phahlane said that the suspects were found in possession of one firearm and drugs.

He adds that the suspects are believed to be linked to the murder of two people at a tavern in Soweto.

Mandla latshwayo and his friend were shot after confronting a group of men who had robbed women of their mobile phones in a pub in Soweto.

Jozi FM head Mpho Mhlongo, who confirmed the star’s death, noted that Mr latshwayo’s father was also killed some years ago during a robbery.

South Africans have been using hash tag #RIPMandla to share their condolences after news of his death broke on Monday morning.

The BBC reports that the suspects will appear in court soon.
