Police Minister Bheki Cele is concerned about possible revenge attacks following a mass shooting that took place in Jabulani Hostel on Monday night. Cele visited the area where the incident took place and spoke to members of the community.
The motive behind the shooting that killed 6 people and injured one other person is still unknown.
“Shock and horror still reign supreme as no one can make sense of the killing nor did anyone expect such a tragedy.
On his visit to the area, Police Minister Bheki Cele paid his respects and appealed to the community for assistance with finding the suspects,” says a nephew of one of the deceased.
The seventh victim of the shooting is in hospital. A search for at least three suspects involved is continuing as police probe the massacre.
Minister Cele visited the area and spoke to community members:
