No one had been arrested in the shooting of a preacher that was shot and killed during an all-night prayer at a church in Diepsloot. The family says they are struggling to come into terms with their loss.

Pastor Vincent Skhakhane was shot and killed on Friday inside a church allegedly by a group of armed robbers. Two other congregants are in hospital after sustaining gunshot wounds.

Skhakhane’s sister in law, Nomusa Nethononda who was also in church when they were ambushed, is calling on Police Minister Bheki Cele to deliver to his promises.

“There’s sadness, there’s shock, there’s mixed feelings. But mostly its sadness and none stopping tears. I’m calling for justice. The last time Mr Cele was here, he said there will always be justice in Diepsloot. But what we have experienced in Diepsloot on Friday night, is not part of justice,” said Nethononda.
