POLICE are looking for the murderers of a Scottsville Extension couple who were shot dead in their Globe Road home last Thursday.Proud Kanyungwe (32), and his wife Belinda Mukucha (28), were killed while their were asleep in the house. Their bodies were found behind a sofa.Kanyungwe was a pastor at the Grace International Church in Pentrish Road, Scottsville. Alexander Road SAPS spokesperson Captain Kholeka Mhlongo said there were eight people living in the house, including three children - two of whom belonged to the victims. “It is alleged that two suspects gained access to the house after they broke the front door and entered the couple’s room. Apparently an argument broke out between the couple and the suspects. A house-mate heard screams and gunshots and upon inspection found the victims’ bodies in the lounge. The suspects fled with two cellphones and a laptop,” she said.Mhlongo said they are worried about the rise of the armed robberies that have taken place in Scottsville recently. “Last Wednesday we had a safety precaution awareness campaign following the increase in the number of armed robberies in Scottsville, especially in Edward Road, Golf Road and Pentrish Road. Although this awareness focused on street robberies, we are now concerned that there are house robberies as well.“We need to do something about these house robberies now before they get out of hand,” Mhlongo said. She said they will continue with their campaign for citizens, especially students because they are easy targets of street robberies. In the past week three people have been robbed at gunpoint in Scottsville. The police are investigating two cases of murder.
