Health MEC Sasekani Manzini said the incident disturbed her. “The continuous attack and murder of our healthcare workers is a serious concern. We have witnessed many of them die in the hands of those that are supposed to protect them.”

“We always call on people to seek professional help if their relationships encounter problems and not resort to violence. The family of the deceased will get justice for the murder of their son. We send our deepest condolences to the family and friends of the deceased.”
