Mzansi was horrified by the deaths

Netizens were horrified by the massacres and feared for their safety.

The 8th Wonder said:

“Bheki Cele needs to, once in a while, just round-search Spshanguve for a good 72 hours. The search must be from house to house and corner to corner the entire weekend from 22:00 on Friday to 22:00 on Sunday.”

EliasMkgotse remarked:

“If the cop was working at OR Tambo Airport, I can tell it was drug-related. Either he was part of the syndicate or denying access.”

Sphelele remarked:

“There is something that needs to be done on a serious note. We have lost so many lives. Enough is enough! Maybe the death penalty could help. Just thinking.”

“My comment might be irrelevant, but this morning when I was walking in my hood, I saw blood drips 2 blocks and wondered what happened.”

William Pihlapihla Lerumo pointed out:

“The death sentence can be implemented, but only if police officers stop their involvement in crime and start working seriously to help themselves and the public.”

Pasadena chap commented:

“Maybe the time has come to review punishment or sentences we give these people as and when they are caught. The current ones don’t seem to work.”
