Cape Town – Former Economic Freedom Fighters (EFF) secretary-general, Godrich Gardee has dropped a bombshell, claiming that he had watched a video of suspects withdrawing money from his daughter Hillary’s account.
Gardee alleged that the car registration of the vehicle used by the suspects was given to the police but no arrests had been made.
He further warned that if he got assassinated, the police should be held accountable.
“I have watched the video of the thugs getting out of the car to the ATM to withdraw the money of #HillaryGardee. @SAPoliceService was given the car registration number. They have not arrested anyone …. If I am assassinated,@SAPoliceService must answer!” Gardee wrote on Twitter on Monday morning.

Earlier this month, Gardee took to Twitter and gave the police an ultimatum, saying that if they didn’t act on information given to them, then their negligence in his daughter’s murder case would be revealed.
However, Mpumalanga police spokesperson Brigadier Selvy Mohlala said at the time that they had no knowledge about the “real verifiable and credible information” to which Godrich referred, Times Live reported.
“The Gardee family is updated frequently through Mr Gardee [ physical meetings and telephonic] regarding the progress of the case. We don’t know what information they have which is going to shock the public.
“Our investigation has not stopped since the case was registered. We are continuing with the investigation and should there be any new suspect(s) detected and linked we will not hesitate to arrest them,” the report quoted Mohlala as saying.
Hillary went missing on April 29 after a shopping trip to a Spar near her home in Mbombela, Mpumalanga.
She was found dead in a field outside Mbombela, Mpumalanga on May 3 with a gun wound on her head.
Suspects Sipho Lawrence Mkatshwa, Philemon Lukhele and Mduzuzi Gama were arrested and charged with murder, rape, conspiracy to commit murder, kidnapping and possession of illegal firearms.
