A teenager was hacked to death in the on-going gang violence in Botshabelo in the early hours of Sunday morning.
18-year-old Zacharia Molale died while trying to flee the attack in which his mother and sister were also hacked.
Police spokesperson, Tseko Mokgahle, says the attack was in retaliation to fight between SVK and BTK gangs the previous day.
Cases of assault and malicious damage to property were opened against the deceased the previous day.
Mokgahle could not confirm which gang the deceased belonged to and says no arrests have yet been made.
