Cops still looking for Gasa suspect
Durban - Police are still hunting for a man linked to the murder of Durban businessman Nhlanhla Gasa, KwaZulu-Natal police said on Sunday.
“Yes we are still looking for a suspect. We can't release further information because of the nature of our investigations. It is a sensitive case and our officers are working hard on the ground...” said Lt-Col Vincent Mdunge.
Gasa's body was found floating in the Tugela River three weeks ago.
Residents saw the corpse and called the police. Gasa, 63, had sustained multiple wounds.
He was an associate to President Jacob Zuma, and the father of South African TV personality Noni Gasa.
Last month, police found his burnt-out Jaguar several metres away from where his body was discovered.
Officers then went to his home in Umhlanga and there they found blood around the house. No valuables were taken from the house.
Police confirmed that he was attacked at his house and then taken to the river.
Gasa was buried on Friday in Ulundi, northern KwaZulu-Natal.
Mdunge told the Sunday Times that police had identified a man in Gasa's murder.
He said a task team, led by the head of KwaZulu-Natal detectives, Major-General Mjabuliswa Ngcobo, was following all leads.
