Minister of Police Bheki Cele will visit the Inanda township, northwest of the Durban CBD in KwaZulu-Natal on Tuesday, following the killing of three women.
It is understood that Cele will be briefed on the murders after the trio were gunned down in a drive-by shooting outside Buhlebethu Primary School during an African National Congress (ANC) meeting on Saturday.
Five other people were injured during the shooting incident and taken to hospital. EWN reported earlier that one of the survivors said now she fears for her life after doctors failed to remove a bullet lodged in her body.
The motive for the attack is unknown, but it's believed it could be politically motivated, although there is no official information available to suggest this.

Families to receive aid from ANC in KZN
Briefly News reported earlier that the relatives of Ncami Shange, Beatrice Nzama, and Philisiwe Jili will receive assistance for the arrangements of the funerals.
The decision to offer assistance came to light following the recent visit by a team headed by KZN ANC provincial chairperson Sihle Zikalala. It was during the said visit that it was discovered that the impacted families are financially challenged.
Cele will visit the scene and engage with the police management team where, among other things, it is expected he will be briefed on the ongoing investigations, including progress on any arrests.
Cele, according to a News24 report, will subsequently make his way to the homes of the deceased to meet with the families. Inanda police are investigating three counts of murder and five of attempted murder.
Thembisa police officer caught on camera ordering a hit on her sister and 5 kids
In related news, Briefly News recently reported that a former police officer from Thembisa was caught on tape directing a hitman and an undercover cop to murder her sister and her sister's five children so she could cash in her sister's life insurance policy.
The ex-constable, Nomia Rosemary Ndlovu, who is being considered a serial killer for the murders of several other family members, will be standing trial at the Palm Ridge High Court on Monday to hear arguments in her defence.
In a video, Ndlovu is seen and heard driving a hitman and undercover police officer to Bushbuckridge to point out her sister's house, according to TimesLIVE.
Ndlovu allegedly wanted the men to set fire to her sister's house while she and her children were present, the youngest of whom was stated to be five months old.
