A 35-year-old woman believed to have hired a hit man to assassinate the wife of a man she allegedly has a relationship with was arrested Monday night in Goodwood.
“Through our internal structures, police managed to intercept the information and already launched an investigation on Friday on the circumstances surrounding the obtained information,” says police spokesperson constable Siphokazi Mawisa.
She added that a legal authorised operation commenced after there was interaction between an agent who posed as a hit man with the suspect.
“The suspect was immediately arrested last night after she made a cash payment as a deposit for the alleged intended hit,” says Mawisa.
The suspect is due to appear in the Goodwood Magistrate’s court on Thursday.
