SAD NEWS : RIP Mrs Zuma was shot with seven bullets at her home

The Zuma family in Makholweni area KwaZulu Natal in uMbumbulu, is in turmoil following the shooting death of the wife of the household on Monday.

According to Isolezwe Mrs Mephi Thembelihle Zuma age 48 is said to have been shot by two unknown men, who raided her home at noon in a small car and open fire.

The deceased’s son, Mr Phumelela Zuma, says that although he usually stays with his mother around noon, he was still out when the attack happened.

“I went out to look for my father on the local road as he was stuck in a car there. I and the others who were traveling with us would try to help her and my mother will continue to be attacked,” said Zuma.

He says he saw a small car running away after a while and a gun shot but he didn’t pay attention because he didn’t think he should focus on it.

“When I came back and came across the scene, the neighbors told me about the same car, which I had noticed the high speed it was driving after the gunshots, that it was the one that entered the house for a while, a gunshot was fired, and it sped away,” said Zuma.

He says that the suspects did not take anything from his mother to show that they did not come to rob but only intended to kill her

They shot her with eight bullets, obviously they wanted her dead,” said Zuma.

He revealed that his mother was not working anywhere but she is the type of woman who tries to make a living with the little she gets.

“We want justice, for the perpetrators to be caught because we don’t know what the mother did to be killed like this,” said Zuma.

The KwaZulu-Natal police spokesperson, Lieutenant Colonel Nqobile Gwala, said that a case of murder has been opened at the Mid-Illovo police station which is being investigated
