Several shops were set alight last night in Kwaguqa, Emalahleni during a service delivery protest by residents.

According to the residents, they have been without electricity for three weeks due to a damaged transformer.

The police reported that one woman was shot and later died at the hospital.  

“We are not yet certain who shot the 50-year-old woman however an immediate investigation is underway which will look into the allegations that the victim as well as other two who reportedly sustained some injuries, were shot by a member or members of the police,” said the Provincial Commissioner of the SAPS in Mpumalanga, Lieutenant General Semakaleng Daphney Manamela, also calling for calm in the area.
