Johannesburg man living in fear after his family was murdered in Lawley
15 August 2016
A Gauteng man whose wife and children were shot dead execution style at their home in Lawley, south of Johannesburg, says he now fears for his life and the lives of the rest of his family.
The 47-year-old Bongani Dlamini survived the weekend attack in which several gunmen stormed into his house.
His wife Hlengiwe, their daughter Samkelisiwe, son Siyabonga and daughter in-law Tumelo died on the scene on Saturday night.
Dlamini says this was third time attackers had targeted his 21-year-old son.
He says he had moved his family from Soweto after the first attempt on his son’s life.
Siyabonga and Tumelo leave behind their two young children, aged two and seven-months-old.
The children were also in the house at the time of the attack. Police say they are investigating.
