CAPE TOWN - Last weekend, four people were killed in a mass shooting in the Marikana informal settlement in Tulbagh. Police investigators think that the shooting was done by two people. An adult man was taken into custody earlier this week, and he then went to court. The legal presentation of the case was moved to Monday.
The second suspect is still at large, and the South African Police Service (SAPS) is offering a reward of R100,000 to anyone who can help catch him. This is a terrible thing to do. I want to let the people of Tulbagh know that it seems to be a one-time thing. I will pay close attention to this case.
I'm glad that one suspect has been caught, and I'd like to thank the SAPS for working quickly to catch him. I'm asking people in the community to come forward with information so that the second suspect can also be taken off the streets and dealt with by our courts. People who want to hurt others in this way don't belong in our communities.
Reagen Allen, MEC for Police Oversight and Community Safety in Western Cape
SAPS is asking anyone who knows anything to call Brigadier Makhaya Mkabile at 082 222 6744 or Lieutenant Colonel Bonginkosi Libaya at 082 222 6744. (082 411 2042).
