The three suspects were traced by police and arrested in Protea Glen, Soweto, on Monday for the
heinous crime which happened in Mpumalanga.
“Three suspects, Siyabonga Kekane, Nkateko Tshidzumba and Bheki Ndlovu made their first court
appearance before Nelspruit Magistrate’s Court on Tuesday, February 6,” Mpumalanga police
spokesperson, Colonel Donald Mdhluli said.
“The trio were all charged with murder. They were all remanded in custody for formal bail
application scheduled for Wednesday, February 14.”
On Tuesday, IOL reported that police in Mbombela had made a major breakthrough in the murder of
Dr Procter – an anaesthetist.
At the time, Mdhluli said the 40-year-old medical doctor had been reported missing on February 1,
and his body was found in an apartment at Green Valley in Mbombela.
He said a team of investigators was assembled to crack the case, leading to the arrest of the three
suspects in Protea Glen.
“The investigators did not disappoint, as they worked around the clock, then finally cracked the case
by apprehending the three suspects at Protea Glen, in the Gauteng province. The trio was cornered
on Monday,” said Mdhluli.
