No arrests have been made following the murder of Gauteng public order policing head Colonel David Hlanganani Makhubela, according to report.

Police spokesperson Noxolo Kweza confirmed to News24 that Makhubela's body was discovered  by passers-by on a street in Turffontein late on Friday night.

News24 reported that SA Police Union’s general secretary Oscar Skommere said Makhubela's firearm and his wallet were still on him when his body was discovered.

Skommere told the news site that it appeared the only items taken were Makhubela's personal and work cellphones calling it very “suspicious”

Makhubela previously provided a statement to the Marikana commission of inquiry, which investigated the deaths of 44 people during strike-related violence at Lonmin's platinum mining operations at Marikana, near Rustenburg, North West in 2012.

He was in command of six armoured vehicles which had to spread out barbed wire at the scene.
