Police have instituted the 72-hour activation plan in search of the k_ller or k_llers.

Nolusindiso’s family was called to the scene on Monday night after the three bodies were discovered by residents in a passage between shacks.

On Tuesday, relatives gathered at the family home.

Nontobeko, Nolusindiso’s mother, said that she was in a state of shock and disbelief following the mu_rder of her youngest daughter.

She explained how she rushed to the crime scene as soon as she learnt about the shooting, only to find her daughter’s body.

“I am very hurt. I don’t know what to do because she’s the only daughter I had, and I am sick. I thought she maybe was the one who was going to look after me.”

The motive for the mu_rders has not yet been established.
