# The motive for the execution-style shooting of a KwaZulu-Natal school principal and his wife at their home in Port Shepstone remains a mystery. The attack happened on Friday night. Gugulethu Sijadu and his wife were killed style while sleeping. Their children found their bodies. Reports say the killers gained access to the house through an open window. According to the family, only two cellphones were stolen during the attack. No arrests have yet been made.

# Cricket: The Proteas Women are taking on the West Indies in the fourth one-day international at the Wanderers dressed in black. They are highlighting violence against women and girls in what has been termed South Africa’s second pandemic. Today’s match will be a series decider, after rain washed out the first match, the West Indies won the second in a super over, and the Proteas then triumphed in the third.

In the Eastern Cape, the Nelson Mandela Bay Municipality has officially launched the Cricket South Africa Twenty20 series which kicks off tomorrow at the St Georges Park in Gqeberha. The eight division one teams will battle it out in 31 games, with the reigning champions, the Lions, set to defend the title they won in early last year. The series comes after a long break in cricket action in the Bay due to the Covid-19 pandemic. It will give fully vaccinated fans an opportunity to enjoy a festival of top-class cricket.

# And finally: While Cape Town swelters in the summer heat, city authorities have had to close Camps Bay Beach, Glen Beach and the Maiden’s Cove tidal pools. A pump failure at the Camps Bay Marine Outfall caused sewage to flow across the beaches. The failure happened on Friday evening and the city ascribes it to an electrical fault resulting from the frequent power outages. The beaches will only reopen when the water returns to normal levels. The city says this could take at least two to three days.
