A Soshanguve family is in deep pain after their five-year-old child was shot and killed during the hijacking of his father at their family home on Friday.

EWN reports the attack occurred when the little boy was welcoming his father from work at the gate, leaving the family devastated.

Just as the Phalane family was celebrating the birth of Tumi Kobe and Ditebogo Phalane Senior’s first daughter, they lost their eldest son less than a week later.

With funeral arrangements underway, she hopes police find the perpetrators, seeking justice for her grandson and closure for her family.
