The three men arrested in connection with the killing of Mozambican Emmanuel Sithole are expected to appear in court on Tuesday‚ as the hunt for the fourth suspect continues.

The arrests overnight were‚ reportedly‚ made with the help of the community.
Yet‚ following the attack‚ Oatway received grudging support when he attempted to remove Sithole from the scene and get him to medical help.
"Help me get him into the car. Help me‚ please‚" said photographer James Oatway‚ looking around at men gathered around him. One stepped forward‚ reluctantly.
Sithole was taken to the nearby Alexandra Day Clinic‚ where nurses did what they could‚ but as there was no doctor – he was apparently absent from the facility as he feared being attacked - he was eventually taken to the Edenvale Hospital.
Shortly after 9am‚ Sithole was pronounced dead.
