Son arrested for killing father, three others


A 33-year-old man was arrested on Saturday night in Mahlabatini near Ulundi after he shot and killed four men, one of them his father, and wounded four others on Friday.

According to reports the man and his father were holding a meeting with neighbours to discuss the movement of cattle that had been staying in a kraal on the property.

KZN SAPS spokesperson Major Thulani Zwane said the suspect would appear in the Mahlabathini Magistrate’s Court soon, facing four charges of murder and four of attempted murder.

A 9mm pistol with one live round of ammunition was also recovered.

‘It will be taken for ballistic tests to establish if it was used in any other crimes,’ said Zwane.
