North West Local Government and Traditional Affairs MEC China Dodovu became the most high-profile suspect in the murder of ANC regional secretary Aubuti Chika when the Hawks arrested him on Monday.
Dodovu, who is also the deputy chairman of the ANC in North West, was arrested at a meeting in Potchefstroom of the ANC’s provincial executive committee officials.
He is the eighth suspect in what is proving to have been a political murder two days before the start of the ANC’s elective conference in Mangaung in December.
Chika was shot dead at his home in Alabama, Klerksdorp, on December 14.
Police said on Monday they expected more arrests in connection with the murder.
Stilfontein- A case against a North West former MEC for Local Government China Dodovu and his co-accused was postponed until Friday by Stilfontein Magistrate Court on Monday.

The security was beefed-up inside and outside court as ANC and EFF members came out in numbers to show their support to troubled comrades.
The ANC in the North West has suspended China Dodovu – the MEC facing a charge of conspiracy to murder. It relates to the gunning down of regional secretary Oubuti Chika. He was shot and killed on the eve of the ANC’s Mangaung conference last year.
