Slain victims’ families live in fear
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. –
