The victims' friend - Nompilo Gudazi says she was with them last night, but left to go home.

"After I left, I heard that they were dead. I don't know what they did and if they did something to those people, I just don't know."

"I can't understand why they had to kill all of them at the same time. They were all my friends and I do not know why they were killed. They are boys, they have their own ways." Gudazi said.

One of the men's girlfriends says she and his family are extremely hurt, "I am really not ok and it hurts a lot." she said.
