ANC volunteer shot dead in front of her 7-year-old son

Police spokesperson FC van Wyk confirmed that the incident is gang related

Cynthia Stoulo, an ANC volunteer from Valhalla Park was yesterday shot several times in the face in what appeared to be a hit and she died on the scene.

An ANC ward councillor, Delmaine Cottee confirmed the incident and said: “We are saddened by the tragic incident. Miemie was an activist, an ANC volunteer and someone who was vocal about gangsterism in the area and especially about violence against women and children.

“The motive for the shooting of Miemie is unknown at this stage, but we are appealing to the community to come forward with information that might lead to the arrest of the suspect.”

Another ANC councillor Rhoda Bazier said it was sad that a woman was so cold-bloodedly murdered just days before the start of Women’s Month and the celebration of Women’s Day.

Police spokesperson FC van Wyk confirming the incident, said the woman was walking with her son when an unknown male approached and shot her.

The suspect fled on foot and is still at large. Van Wyk added that the incident was gang-related and a murder case had been opened for investigation.
