Mass murder in Nyanga claims four lives; one recovering in hospital

Another mass murder has been reported in Cape Town - this time in Nyanga, where four people were shot and killed in Lloyd informal settlement on Sunday night.

The police’s Andre Traut said a fifth victim was admitted to hospital, also with a gunshot wound.

‘’Police members were summoned to the crime scene in Lloyd informal settlement in Govan Mbeki Road at around 21:40 where the bodies of three men and one female in their twenties were discovered with gunshot wounds inside a shack. A fifth victim was admitted to hospital, also with a gunshot wound,’’ said Colonel Andrè Traut.

Traut says the motive for the attack on the victims is unknown at this stage, and no arrests has been made as yet.

Anyone with information regarding the incident are urged to contact Crime Stop on 08600 10111

The Nyanga Community Police Forum (CPF) condemned the incident.

‘’It cannot be just a mass murder for no reason, so we await SAPS’ investigation. We request people with information to come forward with any information. We also appeal with the community not to take the law into their own hands. We denounce the action,’’ said Dumisani Qwebe, Nyanga CPF Secretary.

It has been a while that Lloyd informal settlement was in the news for the wrong reason. It was quiet and happy, until this recent incident,’’ he added.
