Nyanga Community Policing Forum (CPF) secretary Dumisani Qwebe condemned the incident. He described it as ruthless and called on the law to take its course.
“Browns Farm is becoming a danger zone. The killing of people is now becoming a norm. Every day we hear of stories of people being raped and killed or someone gunned down,” said Qwebe.
He urged people to learn to tolerate each other. “It is clear it was not a carjacking because there is nothing that was taken from the victims. Maybe there was a misunderstanding between them,” he said. Qwebe appealed to anyone who has information to report it.
