Cape Tow - Police have arrested the grandson of an 83-year-old woman, who was killed in what seemed to be a spate of revenge killings in Nyanga in April, Western Cape police spokesperson Lieutenant Colonel Andre Traut said on Sunday.

The man was wanted for the shooting of Goodman Kani who was killed in Mau-Mau, Nyanga, on April 19.

The shock events started with a man was shot in his car in Sibini Avenue, Zwelitsha. 

At the time police said that he died on arrival and a few hours later three people went to a house on the same street looking for the elderly woman's grandson.

They shot and killed her, and went to a home Kuqala Avenue where they shot and killed an 8-year-old boy and a 15-year-old girl.

A 7-year-old girl was shot and injured.

Police arrested her grandson at her funeral on Saturday.

He is expected to appear in the Athlone Magistrate's Court on Monday.
