“In the early hours of on Sunday morning I was awoken by people who knocked on my door.
“When I opened they told me that Xolani’s door was open. When I walked into his room I found him lying on the floor. He was shot 14 times,” said Sokanyile.
“His door was kicked open and it appeared he had jumped out of his bed but was overpowered by his attackers. People heard the shots but were too scared to come out.”
