    Hawks hunting for cop killer Rassie Nkuna who gunned down sisters

    The Directorate for Priority Crime Investigation (Hawks) is hunting down Rassie Nkuna for the alleged killing of his girlfriend and her sister, a sergeant with the Mpumalanga police. 


    Nkuna’s victims are his 43-year-old girlfriend Marcia Mazibuko and her sister Sergeant Pretty Mazibuko, 42.

    Mpumalanga Hawks spokesperson Captain Dineo Lucy Sekgotodi says Nkuna allegedly brutally gunned down the pair on 15 May at Kanyamazane. 

    “It is alleged that there was a dispute between Nkuna and his girlfriend, Marcia. Sergeant Mazibuko is said to have tried to calm the situation. Nkuna was armed, drew his firearm and shot both of them,”

    says Hawks spokesperson Sekgotodi.

    The captain explained that the sisters were both rushed to a nearby clinic, however, they were certified dead on arrival. 

    “Nkuna fled the scene and the incident was reported to the police. The warrant for his arrest has been issued by the court,”

    says Sekgotodi.


    According to police reports, two other women intervened in the hopes of quelling the dispute. 

    Provincial police spokesperson, Brigadier Selvy Mohlala, says Nkuna left during the dispute only to return later, armed with a firearm. 

    Mohala says although Nkuna opened fire, the other two unnamed women managed to escape unscathed. 

    Mpumalanga police commissioner, Lieutenant General Semakaleng Manamela, issued condolences to the sisters’ family and vowed justice would be served.

    “Those who are involved in these particular practices of gender-based violence will be dealt with harshly without fear or favour,”

    says Manamela 

    Police have asked that tipoffs be made to investigating officer Lieutenant Colonel Steve Msiza on 082 304 0171 or Warrant Officer Mduduzi Mutubatse on 072 195 0185.

    Alternatively via the Crime Stop number on 08600 10111 or send information via MYSAPSAPP.
