“The motive for the shooting is still unknown,” Lieutenant Colonel Lungelo Dlamini told News24. “The police are, however, following several leads to arrest them.”

The deceased are Siphosakhe Dlamini, Xolani Fiva, Lemewane  Mokhele and Vusi Mokhele. Their ages have not been confirmed yet.

Four other unidentified victims were hospitalised.

Dlamini said information from the members of the community was being followed.
