One suspect freed in Kanye shoot-out


Charges have been dropped against a man who was implicated in last Thursday’s deadly shoot-out in Kanye in which two people – including a police officer – died.

Frankly Samhera (24) from Zimbabwe was released after appearing before Kanye Principal Magistrate, Janet Phosa, who remanded three other suspects. The magistrate told Samhera he was free to go but explained to him that if at a later stage the prosecution gathered evidence that implicated him, they would be at liberty to reinstate the charges.

“For now, you are a free man but just know that the prosecution will still be allowed to reinstate the charges if during investigations, you are linked to the crime,” she said.
