There's a reason the 'GP' suffix on license plates within Gauteng Province (where Gemballa's body was found) is referred to as "Gangster's Paradise". A sad end.

A documentary about Radovan Krejcir. I think there are some parts missing unfortunately.

An extract from an email I received today:

"He used his cars to smuggle black monies into countries like ZA. The last delivery was a Cayenne which should have carried 1million for the named Czech Mafia boss who is being chased by Interpol. The monies were not in the car so Gemballa was lured to ZA under the guise of a new business case and then taken hostage for 1mio…

...After payment was not made, he got shot."

Mystery solved?

"Uwe Gemballa's widow seeks answers"...

...while "Uwe Gemballa's killer sentenced to 20 years in jail:"

In what has been a story that has featured so many twists and turns, the latest development comes in the arrest of 28-year-old Thabiso Mpshe of Pretoria for his involvement in the murder of Uwe Gemballa . Mpshe was arrested last Friday before being sentenced to 20 years in prison in a Johannesburg high court later in the afternoon, a dizzying sequence of events that has taken this saga to new heights. Police spokesman Colonel Vishnu Naidoo was "not at liberty to say" if Mpshe had plead guilty or if a deal was struck, but something fishy is going on for this arrest, trial, and sentencing all to be done in a mere 24 hours.

Despite the arrest being made, the authorities are still in the dark as to how Gemballa was murdered adding even more questions to this bizarre story. According to police spokesman Colonel Vishnu Naidoo, “it is still unclear how Gemballa was murdered, but indications are that he was suffocated. He had no visible injuries.”

Meanwhile, Uwe Gemballa ’s body is on its way back to Germany, according to Martin Schaefer, spokesman for the German consulate in South Africa. "The corpse is being flown to his home,” he said. “We have offered our consular services in terms of issuing official documents for customs and the like."

The arrest and subsequent conviction of Mpshe is the latest in a saga that has had more plots and turns than a mystery thriller novel. From the looks of things, we’re thinking that this won’t be the last news we’re going to hear regarding the murder of Uwe Gemballa. The whole secretive nature of this arrest and conviction only lead us to believe that authorities are on to something, and on to something big. Why else would such a high profile situation get pushed under the rug so quickly?
