She said he would appear in the Pretoria Magistrate’s Court on Monday.

Jones said details surrounding the arrest were being withheld as they may pose a threat to the ongoing investigation.

“We are following leads and will ensure the culprits face the full might of the law,” said Jones.

A docket of murder, housebreaking and theft have been opened.

The Moloto sisters were buried in Polokwane on Saturday.
