Police have stepped up their investigations in an alleged hit list to assassinate some ANC members of the Mabopane branch.

Eleven people are mentioned in the alleged hit list which police have acted on before someone got killed.

The hit list was emailed to Rekord this week with names of 11 people implicated.

Ga-Rankuwa cluster commander, Colonel Nare Ramangwa, confirmed the hit list but added that the matter was under intense investigation now, since one man was arrested.

“One suspect, believed to be behind the threats has been arrested. The suspect was arrested last year on 3 November and charged with conspiracy and incitement to commit serious crime, said Ramangwa.

“Investigations are continuing as a plot to murder a list of people cannot be underestimated.”

The arrested man has made his first appearance in court, but was not asked to plead. He would be back in court on 10 February.

The names mentioned on the list includes a Tshwane metro MMC.

Ramangwa refused to give more details, saying the matter was very sensitive, and certain people were being questioned.

With tension and fear, amid allegations of murder plots, certain people on the list preferred to remain silent when contacted for comment by Rekord.

‘The ANC does not kill. Any person … found to be involved in any criminal activities such as murder … cannot be a member of the ANC, no matter what position they [are] holding,” Tshwane region spokesperson, Tebogo Jwala said this week.

Rekord is in possession of the full list of the targeted people.
