newsNews24 reports that a week since two men were killed during evictions in Hammanskraal, the company that employed them has failed to shed light on what went wrong on that day.  

As the families of Elias Tshabalala and Lucky Nelushi try to piece together the events of 23 May, Majorie’s Trading Enterprise has remained quiet.  The two Soshanguve men were killed when Hammanskraal residents turned on employees of Red Ants security company and Marjorie’s, a Pretoria-based construction and security business, which had been sent to evict them from land in the area last Monday.  Five people were arrested, one of them for murder.  Elias was buried in Soshanguve on Sunday, with the company’s help.  The Tshabalalas had however expressed dissatisfaction with how the arrangements were handled.  They accused Marjorie’s of not keeping to its end of the agreement and said they ended up having to spend more money to bury their breadwinner.
