Stray bullet causes scare

- Muzi Zincume

AN Empangeni woman’s quiet TV time was suddenly disrupted on Sunday when a stray bullet hit one of her home’s sliding doors.

Hlakaniphi­le Lukhele (61) of Mack Park thought she was under attack. ‘Fearing for my life, I ran into my bedroom to hide.’

The incident occurred just after 8pm and she was scared to sleep at her home alone as she feared there might be other bullets.

‘On Monday I reported the matter to the Empangeni police.

‘They ordered me back home and promised to investigat­e. I waited for them the entire day, and they did eventually turn up.

‘They promised to send me a case number via SMS, but to date there has been no response.’
