The country has become a hub of bloodshed, with mass killings looming across different parts of South Africa.
Just in space of three weeks a huge number of close to 60 people have been assassinated, for no apparent reason.
Only few behind these mass killings have been apprehended while other suspects are still on the loose, the SA Police Service, seems to be overwhelmed as they are battling to find the architect responsible for the mass killings.
National Police Commissioner General Fannie Masemola has also expressed with shock on the continuous deadly shooting sprees and issued a stern warning to criminals, however the question at hand still remains, on what’s driving lawlessness in the country, who’s responsible for the mass killings?
The first mass murder was a tavern genocide ‘Enyobeni tragedy’ last month in June, a drinking spot based in Eastern Cape Province, where 21 pupils perished.
In that mysterious murder, the owner of the tavern and two employees were arrested for selling alcohol to underage children and the liquor license was revoked.
It couldn’t end in Eastern Cape, as the mass genocide widespread to other provinces, where two cases of genocide took charge in Gauteng and KwaZulu-Natal.
In Soweto, Gauteng 15 innocent people were gunned down by group of gunmen who are still on the loose, while in Samukelisiwe tavern, KwaZulu-Natal four people were shot dead, and the police have arrested two people thus far.
This past week, another mass murder cases were reported in Free State, Western Cape and Gauteng, here is the breakdown:
On Friday, Seven farm workers in Lismor farm district outside Kestell in Free State were shot dead. Two suspects aged between 22 and 34 years were arrested.
On Saturday, in the shopping store, Bloemfontein, two people were killed and suspects are still on the loose.
Five people have reportedly been killed in yet another shooting, this time in the south of Lenasia, Johannesburg, Gauteng.
Another four people have reportedly been killed in another string of random bullets in Khayelitsha, Cape Town.
The motive behind these mass murders are still unknown and citizens have started to question government for its incapacity role to polish up acts of lawlessness in the country.
