Kabokweni police have opened a case of murder.

Capt Shirley Nsimba, spokesperson for KaBokweni police, urged members of the community to refrain from mob justice.

“As much as we understand the frustrations that our communities are facing in terms of crime, but we urge them not to take the law into their own hands. The station is always available to assist,” she said.
