Police Minister Bheki Cele visited the crime scene on Sunday. He also urged community members to avoid giving credence to rumours on social media. “You confuse the situation, you confuse the investigation.

“Some of the people (who use social media), they fight their own battles on social media. Others are criminals that are trying to (distort) the thinking line that police are trying to follow. Allow the police to do their work,” said Cele.
