Bloemfontein police are seeking more information about a shooting that happened on 29 October 2023.

According to a media statement, the Kagisanong police received two complaints about shootings and two cases of murder and attempted murder were opened.

“The members first arrived at a scene near the R702 road at Dinaweng, where they found lifeless bodies of three males between the ages of 26 and 37 inside a Green Ford Ka Sedan, at about 22:30.

Two other males aged 34 and 35 survived the attack. According to the report given to the police, the five males were all watching a rugby final game when the generator ran out of fuel and they jumped into the motor vehicle to quickly get some and come back to watch the game further.”

It is alleged that as the five males approached the R702 road, bullets rained on them, fatally injuring the three males, the fourth male was also injured but the fifth male was not hit by any bullet.

“The patrol vehicle also attended to a scene inside the Southern Landfill Site. It is alleged that four unknown armed men arrived at the dumping site at about 23:00 looking for ‘Radinyewe’ at the illegally erected living structures.

The assailants then opened fire on two victims inside two of the illegal structures.

“The suspects left the victims with multiple gunshot wounds. The Emergency Medical Services personnel later declared the two victims dead. The deceased were identified as Thabo Malebo and Lesenyeho Mokhele.”
