He appeared at Mthatha Magistrate's Court and is facing charges of possession of firearm and ammunition and charges of conspiracy to murder.

The municipal official's case was postponed to September 21st, 2020 for formal bail application.

Dailysun reports that the regional National Prosecuting Authority spokesperson Luxolo Tyali says that Siqhola was arrested over the weekend when police received a tip off that he is searching for a hitman to end Thando Mase's life. Tyali says that when Siqhola appears for his bail application, the NPA will oppose it.

According to Dailysun, Mase is the municipal manager of the Mhlontlo local municipality and a former director of infrastructure and is a witness to a R169 000 fraud case which implicates Siqhola. The fraud case will be heard at Qumbu Magistrate's Court on Wednesday.

Sanco members and Qumbu community members have confirmed to Daily sun that they will protest outside Qumbu Magisteate's Court on Wednesday and also on September 21st when Siqhola appears at Mthatha Magistrate's Court.
