KZN Acting Provincial Commissioner, Maj Gen Bheki Langa, has condemned the killing of three people at Mbongolwane in the early hours of Sunday morning.

‘We are deeply shocked by the brutal killings of innocent people.

‘We appeal to the community to be calm and allow the police to investigate this case thoroughly so that the killers may face the full might of the law.

‘People should engage in talks and resolve their differences in a peaceful manner rather than resort to such brutal acts of violence,’ he said.

The victims were sleeping in their rondavel at Mbongolwane when they were attacked by unknown persons. Their dwellings were also set alight.

Three people aged between 30 and 50 years were killed, while another two were seriously injured.

Two suspects were taken in for questioning by detectives.

‘We cannot speculate on the motive for the attack at this stage as the matter is still under investigation,’ said Langa.
