GAMALAKHE detectives are investigating a murder in Gamalakhe, Eskaleni that took place last Wednesday at around 9.15pm.

Manqoba Ncane (31), was shot by unknown men at his house and died after sustaining four gunshot wounds to his body and two to his head.

Mondli Ncane, the victim’s brother, said the incident took place after a family gathering in the main house.

“It happened just after the family had celebrated a child’s birthday. My brother then left the main house and went to his room, which is an outside building.

“My younger brother went out for a few minutes. When he returned he found Manqoba’s body on the floor.” said Mondli.

Mondli was not at home at the time of the incident, but received a call from his mother who told him to hurry home.

Manqoba’s mother did hear gunshots, but never suspected them to be at her home.

“We will let the police do their investigations,” said Mondli.

Mondli said his brother was a humble man and the community is shocked by his death.

No arrests have been made so far.
