The four suspects include a police officer. KwaZulu-Natal police spokesperson Jay Naicker says the 37-year-old officer was arrested on Thursday morning.

Naicker says the arrests were made after a joint police raid with the provincial organised crime unit.  

The arrests come just days after Police Minister Fikile Mbalula launched a new satellite police station at the hostel.

More than 90 murders have taken place at the hostel over the past three years, with many of the crimes believed to be politically motivated.
