Police arrest another suspect for the murder of Jayde Panayiotou

Another person has been arrested in connection with the murder of Jayde Panayiotou, 29, according to The Herald.

Zolani “Roxo”, who is believed to be in his 30s, was arrested at his parental home in Greenbushes at 12:15pm on Sunday.

He will appear in the Port Elizabeth Magistrate’s Court on Tuesday on charges which include murder.

Roxo was arrested by investigating officer Captain Kanna Swanepoel.

Through cellphone plotting, police were allegedly able to place Roxo at Jayde’s Kabega Park residence together with suspected hitmen Sizwezakhe Vumazonke and Sinethemba Nemembe on April 15 last year, when it alleged they scouted her route to work at Riebeek College in Uitenhage.

Roxo was again present, police allege, when the kidnapping was foiled the following day, on April 16, when the men could not find Jayde.

Christopher Panayiotou is accused of ordering the hit on his wife.

Roxo is believed to be Zolani’s mother’s maiden name and police are still trying to determine the correctness of the surname given to them upon his arrest.
