Gauteng premier David Makhura went to visit the family of murdered Matwetwe actor, Sibusiso Khwinana, telling the family that suspects have been identified.
A task team has been founded to investigate the case, comprising of forensic experts and specialised detectives.
Makhura said three suspects have been found but no arrests have been made.
“The police are behind them, they are following on their heels,” said Makhura.
Sibusiso Khwinana’s family members were grateful to the officials for bringing them comfort, they also hoped that this would be done for other family members faced with the same crime.
The actor was stabbed at the Pretoria CBD last week allegedly over a cellphone.
Senior police officials said that they want to proceed by the books even though they have already found suspects.
