The Motive Behind The Kwazakhele Mass Shooting

The Kwazakhele Mass Shooting is heart-wrenching, and it is unfair to the innocent people who lost their precious lives.

Gen. Bheki Cele, the police minister, visited the victims’ families on January 30 and assured them they would not stop until the criminals were brought to justice.

According to Cele, “The cruelty that occurred here makes it abundantly evident that those who came here (the shooters) wanted people dead and wanted to break apart families by killing brothers and friends.”

The type of people who were present, he continued, “tells you that those criminals have a problem, but they also have to face penalties and give answers.”

While the exact motive behind the Kwazakhele Mass Shooting has not yet been revealed, officers are trying their best to provide justice to the victims’ families.

Police spokesperson Col. Priscilla Naidu mentioned, “Voice notes and a video clip that are circulating in connection with these murders have been made known to police.”

The police are pleading with anyone who receives these notes or films not to spread them because doing so could have disastrous effects on those who are depicted therein.”
