Two princes were killed in separate incidences recently. Prince Zwelithini Dlamini was shot and killed by an unknown man who stormed into his house in Matsulu near January 4 around 22:00. The victim was eating with his two friends when shooting occurred. His friends ran for cover.
Meanwhile, in Siyabuswa, Prince Andries Mbangelwa Mahlangu was shot and killed while sitting in his vehicle. His son told the police that he heard gunshots at around 08:15 and went out to investigate. He then saw two men running out of the yard where his father had parked his vehicle.
When he approached the vehicle, he realised that his father was leaning with his chest against the steering wheel unconscious.
“He further discovered that the victim was shot. He immediately summoned police who also summoned emergency services. Mahlangu was certified dead on the scene,” said SAPS provincial spokesperson, Leonard Hlathi.
Police are requesting anyone with information that can assist in the investigation to contact Lieutenant Colonel April Aphane on 0823026621.
