A reward of R50 000 is set aside for anyone with information that might lead to the arrest of the suspects involved in a shooting incident at Henny Mabuza hostel outside Ritavi resulting in the death of a 28-year-old woman last night (Wednesday).
Provincial Police Spokesperson Moatshe Ngoepe indicated that Innocentia Nxalati Shingange and
her 20-year-old partner were asleep when a group of armed suspects stormed into the room and started shooting randomly without saying a word.
