A Khayelitsha community knows who's behind a triple murder in the TT Block informal settlement

A Khayelitsha community knows who’s behind a triple murder in the TT Block informal settlement, according to the Site B community policing forum.

Three high school friends, Nolusindiso Bless, 17, Siyasanga Nkasela, 20, and Zintle, 21,were shot dead execution-style on Monday evening.

The community policing forum’s Nozuko Mdingi told the IOL that the young women had been at a tavern before the attack.

“They were killed by a blesser who bought them alcohol,” said Mdingi.

Mdingi explained that the man bought them alcohol and planned to sleep with one of the young women, but they left him at the tavern.

The man followed the women and approached the one he planned to sleep with and there was an argument.

“He shot her dead, the other two were also shot because they were witnesses of the brutal murder,” Mdingi said.

Adding that there were other witnesses of the shooting but are scared of coming forward.

“We live in shacks, that makes our homes easily accessible. The police cannot guarantee protection to witnesses, if they come forward and the community is not united. Some community leaders know the shooter personally,” she said.

An investigation into the matter has been prioritized by police, however there’ve been no arrests yet.
