Ga-rankuwa police station that is currently investigating the shooting case at Olievenhoutbosch pub

Gunmen in a silver Polo vehicle opened fire at random last Friday night killing two and injuring seven more people.

Mr Shaun Ligaraba, who was at the tavern said the mode of operation and the absence of a motive means that South Africans are under attack.

“The owner of the Olievenhoutbosch pub said the police and politicians are either lying or trying to prevent sending fear in the country that this is an attack on South Africans.

“Taverns are mostly thought of as places to gather over a shared interest, socialize, and forget about the trouble the country is facing in terms of unemployment, a failing economy, rising food prices, and juvenile delinquency.
