Cape Town – The former Economic Freedom Fighters (EFF) secretary-general Godrich Gardee has threatened to expose the police for their incompetence after they allegedly failed to act on “real verifiable and credible information” he provided to them about the murder of his daughter Hillary Gardee 20 days ago.
Godrich took to Twitter on Wednesday to say that police had been given credible and verifiable information that could lead to the arrest of more people in the murder of his daughter.
He said that there was a “countdown” for police to act on the information or they would be “exposed soon.”
“In other news other than #StateCapture – shenanigans & gross incompetence of @SAPoliceService on kidnap & murder of #HillaryGardee will be exposed soon if they do not act as they know of the valuable information put before them 20 days ago. The count down comes to an end soon,” wrote Godrich in a tweet.

According to Times Live, Mpumalanga police spokesperson Brig Selvy Mohlala said they have no knowledge about the “real verifiable and credible information” to which Godrich refers.
“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,” Mohlala said as quoted by the report.
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.
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.
