KwaThema – Two brothers were shot while sitting in their car on Vuleni Street in Ekuthuleni Settlement on September 27.

One of the brothers was hit in both arms, stomach and thigh, while the other sustained gunshot wounds to the head and thigh.

“Cartridges were found on the ground.”

Sibuyi says the officers spoke to the wife of one of the victims (35).

Both victims were rushed to a nearby hospital for treatment and were in critical condition.

Sibuyi says the motive for the shooting is unclear.
