Second suspect sought in Solik murder case

Crime & Courts
Durban – Police are appealing for assistance from the community in locating Xolani Brian Ndlovu in connection with the Solik murders in the Nottingham Road area.

Police spokesperson Nqobile Gwala said in a statement that Ndlovu’s place of residence is unknown but he is usually seen at Umlazi C and F section; Mpophomeni; Mafakatini and France, Pietermaritzburg. He is 1.75m in height, fair in complexion and well built. 

It is believed that Roger and Christine Solik were murdered after a robbery in their home in an upmarket estate in February.

They were reported missing after a concerned neighbour went to check on them and found that their home had been ransacked. The body of Christine, 57, was found in the Lotheni River in Nzinga, Impendle, later that same day. Three days later, Roger's body was found a few kilometres downstream from where his wife’s body had been found.
