Police Department Spokesperson Lirandzu Themba says, “The news of a drive-by shooting that has claimed the lives of three women at Inanda township in Durban has been received with shock by the police ministry.

On Saturday a black Opel Corsa bakkie with five occupants opened fire on a group of people waiting outside a local primary school. The cowardly act claimed the lives of 34-year-old Ncami Shange, 60-year-old Beatrice Nzama and Philisiwe Jili who was 37 years of age.”
