"The two South African nationals aged 28 and 29, are brothers from Durban, KwaZulu-Natal. In their home country, they're wanted to assist with information about several murder cases, including that of a musician.
"When members of the Royal Eswatini Police Service (REPS) pounced on them on Friday, they were reportedly found inside the house they were renting since their arrival in the country. It's revealed that there were three people living in the house, and the other one is still at large."

Furthermore, the suspects will also be charged with remaining in Eswatini without valid documents. The REPS and SAPS (South African Police Service) are reportedly discussing having the suspects deported to South Africa.
