The Premier of the Northern Cape, Ms Sylvia Lucas, expressed her shock and dismay on the callous attack, which resulted in the death of three members of the Makaleni family. This brutal killing comes during a month where Government will be launching the 16 Days of Activism Campaign of no violence against women and children and we therefore call on communities to work with Government to ensure that our places of living and our environments are safer havens. There can be no justifiable reason or explanation for one person to inflict so much pain and suffering on anyone.

Ms Lucas on behalf of the Northern Cape Provincial Government expresses her heartfelt condolences to the family, friends and the broader community. We pray that the Almighty God grants the family patience and strength to deal with this huge loss. The Premier has full confidence that the law enforcement will deal with the matter in the appropriate manner and with the urgency it deserves.
