The Star Early Edition - - NEWS - Nosipho Mn­goma

THE FAM­I­LIES of six peo­ple who were gunned down in a sus­pected whoonga den say they are too scared to even re­ceive mourn­ers.

“After the fu­neral, we are go­ing to pack up this house and lock it up… none of us will ever feel safe here,” said Nomvula Dubazana, the mother of one of the vic­tims.

Her 20-year-old daugh­ter Hlengiwe was shot dead on Fri­day night with her un­cles Siphelele Kub­heka, 37, and Siyanda Kub­heka, 26, and friends Nonhlanhla Mb­hele, 22, Siphamandla Mavundla, 27, and Mce­bisi Gondo, 29. The sole sur­vivor of the mas­sacre in the Kub­hekas’ home in Ge­orgedale near Ham­mers­dale, was Bon­gani Ntuli, 29. He is in a crit­i­cal con­di­tion in hos­pi­tal. –
