How do you point a gun at a three-year-old child and pull the trigger? The community of Grabouw is still in shock after a father and his three-year-old son were BRUTALLY gunned down in their vehicle.
Solomzi Ntwana, better known as Solly, and his little boy were shot by an unknown man.
According to police spokesperson Colonel Andrè Traut, no arrests have been made since the fatal shooting that took place on Tuesday evening.
“The circumstances surrounding a double murder are under investigation following an incident on Tuesday night at around 21:50 in Charmaine Street Grabouw,” Traut said.
He said Solly and his son aged three were shot and killed in their vehicle by an unknown suspect who is yet to be arrested.
“The motive for the murders is yet to be determined. Any person who can shed light on the matter is kindly requested to contact Crime Stop on 08600 10111.”
The Executive Mayor of Theewaterskloof Municipality Karel Kallie Izak Papier said Solly was employed by the municipality in 2007 and became an integral member of the Theewaterskloof Human Settlements Department.
“He was the Senior Housing Development Officer in Grabouw and was known for his humble demeanor, his sense of calm and his infectious laughter,” Papier said.
He furthermore said Solly was responsible for the administrative housing functions in Grabouw, but was always ready to assist where he can and often offered to help with informal settlement and operational support within the town.
“He was also responsible for supportive housing and informal settlement projects and proved himself a valued and skilled member of the municipality.
“Solly was well known to the greater community and was synonymous with housing and any other matter they needed help with,” Papier added.
Papier said the administration and political leadership of Theewaterskloof are saddened and mourn the tragic loss of Solomzi Ntwana.
“We visited his family to share our condolences and deepest sympathy during this difficult time.
“He is missed as a beloved colleague and will be remembered for his contribution to bettering our communities,” he concluded.
