Crimes is South Africa is becoming very worrisome as we wake up to one ad news or the other almost everyday.
Many citizens are calling on the Police Minister Fikile Mbalula and his department to step up their games so as to protect lives and properties.
On Friday morning, SAPS confirmed that a 30-year-old woman was murdered in an execution style at Durban’s notorious Glebelands hostel.
Her painful death will make it the 92nd victim in violence linked to the precinct.
“A 30-year-old woman was allegedly shot and killed at Glebelands hostel last night at 8:30pm‚” police spokesman Colonel Thulani Zwane said.
“It is alleged that she was in her room when an unknown suspect entered her room and shot her. A murder case was opened at Umlazi police station and police are investigating.”
Few days ago, three men sitting in a tuck shop‚ were shot at by a lone gunman in broad daylight. The shooting left all three injured‚ but they survived.
No arrests have been made in either case‚ and community activists have previously expressed dismay that not one conviction has been made linked to Glebelands murder cases.
Activist Vanessa Burger‚ who has testified under oath at the Moerane Commission into political violence in KZN‚ said last night that this was the 92nd murder either at or linked to violence at Glebelands.
“We appeal to anyone who might have information about the whereabouts of the suspect to come forward and report to the police‚” said Zwane.
