Cape Town – At least one Lesotho national was stabbed to death, and six others injured, in Pretoria East on Sunday, Gauteng paramedics said.

They were attacked in the Plastic View informal settlement on Sunday afternoon, said Netcare 911 spokesperson Chris Botha.

He said the Lesotho nationals had stab wounds and severe lacerations.

Six had minor to serious injuries, while one man was critically injured.

The man later died in hospital.

“Reports from people at the squatter camp indicate that four others were killed further into the camp; however hostile community members with sticks and pangas refused the emergency service access to the camp,” Botha said.

According to the Garsfontein Sector 4 CPF- Moreltapark Facebook page, several reports were received of a huge riot in the area.
