5 SA Musicians That Were Brutally Murdered


Most celebrities that SA lost have died through sicknesses or car accidents, the other few that have passed on just died too soon because they suffered in the hands of perpetrators. The Musicians listed were shot and stabbed. This is just another example of how unsafe citizens are with all these criminals who are looking to gain through blood, tears and pain of others. Death is inevitable and unexpected but that is not reason enough to take someone else’s life. According to a study that was done by businesstech.online in 2012 South Africa was the second country with the most gunshot deaths. Most of these firearms were and are unlicensed. By the looks of things the rate hasn’t decreased at all, people are being shot daily. SA tries to prevent criminal acts, what it fails to do is practicing justice and giving fair punishment as to set an example.
