Skhumbuzo Nxumalo was shot dead in KwaPata on Wednesday night.

Just a few hours after national police Minister Bheki Cele’s visit to the Plessislaer Police Station on Wednesday, there was yet another shooting.

This time 35-year-old Skhumbuzo “Mbuzi” Nxumalo was shot dead in KwaPata. He is the nephew of ANC activist Musawenkosi “Qashana” Mchunu, who was gunned down in May 2018.

Nxumalo was killed just before 8 pm while the whole area was dark due to load shedding.
