The Deputy Police Spokesperson, Assistant Commissioner Paul Nyathi confirmed the arrest. He said:

“Yes we confirm the arrest of a suspected teenager who wanted to use the name of Senator Hungwe to steal a car.

”More details will be revealed as investigations are underway.”

Police believe there were more people involved in the deal. Upon being confronted the visibly shaken Kingsolom pleaded with the detectives saying:

“I am sorry, I just wanted to use the vehicle for an outing with friends and I wanted to be showing off to them that I have a nice car.”

He was however taken to Southerton Police Station for further investigations.
