Gauteng police say they will investigate the murder of six people who were found with multiple gunshot wounds along the N1 freeway at the Murraysburg exit.
The bodies are believed to belong to illegal miners operating in the area. Traffic on the track is limited in both directions.
“At this stage, we do not know what the motive is, but it is confirmed that they have gunshot wounds. We will investigate six counts of murder and a motive will be determined. These people are suspected to be Zama Zamas in the area,” says Gauteng Police spokesperson Brenda Muridili.
