Condolences to the victims' families.

And another shooting with four dead in Pietermaritzburg. I visited both cities a long time ago. An incredible, fascinating country but not without its problems, obviously. It's almost like two countries. The gated communities and the townships. In the cities, at least. And I'm speaking as someone who has only spent two weeks there, visiting friends but essentially a tourist.

"You can see that a high caliber firearm was used and it was shooting randomly. You can see that every one of those people were struggling to get out of the tavern,” Mawela told The Associated Press."

Rifles and handguns according to other sources. Pretty strict gun control in South Africa, too.
