Simnikiwe Jimi (shown above) is suspected of rapping a 34-year-old lady in 2019. Finally, police have made the long-awaited arrest of Simnikiwe Jimi (seen above).
According to a Saps news report, police received a call from a worried homeowner in Southernwood today, November 16th, 2021, regarding a rape suspect who had been missing since 2019. The anonymous caller indicated that he heard on social media that police were looking for a man he spotted this morning.
He provided valuable information to police about where they could find the suspect, and they went to raid a house in St Georges Street, Southernwood, where they found him. It turns out he had been living there with relatives the entire time he was hiding, and he is currently in jail and will appear in the Gqeberha magistrates' court tomorrow, November 17th, 2021, to face a charge of rape.
Further investigation will be conducted to see if his relatives hid him from being arrested on purpose, and if they are proven to be involved, they may be arrested for obstructing justice.
