Two of Dr. Esther Mahlangu’s suspected attackers have been arrested and they will appear in Court tomorrow.

Mahlangu was attacked and assaulted in her home in Siyabuswa in Mpumalanga last month.

The Ndebele artist was robbed off an undisclosed amount of money aswell as her firearm.

Police in Mpumalanga questioned seven people but ended up arresting only two people.


One suspect was found in possession of a gun that was stolen from Mahlangu’s house. The second suspect had sold the gun to the firstĀ  suspect.

It is believed that these two individuals were opportunistic and that they had been watching the house for quite some time before they attacked.

The Premier of Mpumalanga, Refilwe Mtshweni, confirmed the arrests.
