Cele revealed, “I have a list of 12 murders in September and October only by these suspects. We are saying, as police, it can only be blood that should be the price for the member that is [lying] here.”

At the first crime scene in nearby Mzinyathi, four other suspects were shot by the police. Cele expressed his concern, stating, “It is clear that criminals have declared war not just on the police but on the community, including those involved in community policing forums. I am worried these are the groups that sit down and plot against the police.”
