On Sunday, 1 March 2015, the body of a man was found in a river in Muldersdrift. Detective Sergeant Nkuna interviewed Nyoni, whom he knew from another case, after he was said to be a friend of the deceased. There were blood stains on Nyoni’s clothes and as the interview progressed, he admitted to the murder and also indicated that Tshepo Chauke was his accomplice.
