On social media, videos of a horrific shootout at Chillas Lodge near Hazyview in Mpumalanga Nelspruit are circulating.
Unfortunately, many people have died, including a woman named Fundiswa. The first of the four videos shows crowds of people watching Kamogelo Mphela perform a live show at the lodge. The audience is singing and dancing along with the singer.
Things abruptly shifted, with happiness giving way to gloom. People are seen running and jumping the wall in search of cover and attempting to save themselves in the second video. This is after the gunshots, where the terrified masses panic and trigger a ruckus. Other people are wounded, and some are yelling for help.
The third and fourth videos are more upsetting, as gunshots and people weeping can be heard. To avoid being targeted, some people are hiding under tables and lying down. As people run for their lives, a gang of males is seen fighting in the corner.
Bottles are being thrown everywhere, and some men are occupied in one corner beating up on other men. One man walks around with what appears to be a pistol in his hand.
It's also unclear if this was a robbery or a gang gunfight. This is both frightening and depressing. The lady who was confirmed dead was caught in the crossfire and died at the gate.According to reports, a few more people died, but this has yet to be verified.
In certain crowded places, arty has become risky. The public is encouraged to stay healthy and drink responsibly at all times.

Innocent people who have little to do with the war or something else are killed in such situations.
