Man in court for murder at Limpopo car dealership

The National Prosecuting Authority in Limpopo says a 33-year-old man from Burgersfort has appeared in Polokwane Magistrate’s Court on charges of murder, robbery with aggravating circumstances, possession of unlicensed firearms and ammunition. 


NPA spokesperson Mashudu Dzhangi says Immanuel Charles Maboko walked into a BMW dealership in Polokwane pretending to buy a car.


“Whilst pretending to buy a car and all of a sudden, he pulled out a firearm and demanded the car keys of a BMW X6 from the sales manager.


“During the altercation, the 56-year-old man Muofhe Luvhimbi, an educator of the Vhembe district who had brought his vehicle for service, was shot dead at the scene.”

“Police were immediately alerted, the suspect was later arrested at Silicon, next to Peter Mokaba Stadium after he was found inside the stationary BMW motor vehicle, and two firearms were also found in the vehicle.”


The matter is postponed to May 6 for further investigations.
