South Africa is reeling in shock from a spate of weekend bar shootings in which armed men burst into three taverns and opened fire indiscriminately, killing 21 people in total. The worst was in Johannesburg’s Soweto township in which 15 people were killed and several others seriously injured when several men charged into a bar and started shooting with AK-47 semi-automatic rifles late Saturday night.
An eyewitness, who lost three relatives in the tavern shooting, said she was startled by gunshots in the middle of the night and started panicking when she discovered her 17-year-old grandson was not home. According to police Minister Bekhi Cele, who visited the Nomzamo township following the shooting, the gunmen responsible for the shooting were clearly intending to kill the patrons at the tavern.

Harry Maguire will remain captain of Manchester United for the 2022-23 season, Erik ten Hag has confirmed. The center-back faced heavy criticism for his performances last term, with many questioning his leadership qualities, but the new coach insists he is the right choice for the role and has explained his decision. The objections to Maguire’s captaincy and the arrival of the Dutch manager resulted in speculation that the armband would be passed on to someone else.
However, Ten Hag clarified on Monday that the England international would continue as the leader of the Red Devils. “Harry Maguire is the captain,” Ten Hag said at a press conference. “Of course, I have to get to know all the players and it takes time, but he is an established captain for a few years and he has achieved a lot of success, so I don’t doubt about this issue.”
