National police commissioner Gen Fannie Masemola and minister Bheki Cele will on Monday receive a full report on the mass shooting that claimed 15 lives at a tavern in Nomzamo informal settlement in Orlando East, Soweto.

After the private briefing at the Orlando police station, a site visit to the crime scene will be conducted.

A manhunt is underway for the gunmen who arrived in a Quantum minibus taxi and started shooting randomly at tavern patrons in the early hours on Sunday.  They were armed with rifles and 9mm pistols.
