A three-year-old boy is the sole survivor of a murder spree at a residence in New Brighton, Eastern Cape, that killed six people, including his mother.

Others were stabbed while others were shot.

The unhurt infant was apparently discovered next to his mother’s body, who had been shot twice in the head.

“At this time, the suspects’ identities and motives for the shootings are unknown.

On Saturday, four of the six deceased were recognised by family members, according to Naidu.

“Phindile Matrose (male/houseowner), his sister (Cikizwa Matrose), Noxolo Tom (female, 31), and Lungisi Kitsane are among them (male). The identity of the two surviving victims, a guy and a female, are unknown.

“The child that has survived is a male. He was abducted by family members. The child’s mother and spouse shared a home with her brother. The husband was not present since he was ill.”

Six counts of murder are being investigated by the provincial organised crime investigation team in Gqeberha.

Major General Thandiswa Kupiso, the acting Provincial Commissioner, has immediately initiated a 72-hour activation plan to find the killers.

She has also urged the people of New Brighton to cooperate with authorities in identifying and apprehending those guilty for the “gruesome murders.”
