Nokulunga Mbangi cries after being told that her husband Isaac Mofali had been killed by the Red Ants. He was (allegedly) beaten to death with crowbars. She is comforted by her sister-in-law Sophie Mofali. The death was one of two that occured during a so-called 'demolition' operation to clear dwellings and evict squatters from land in Vlakfontein.  The Red Ants are a controversial private security company often hired to clear squatters from land and so-called 'hijacked' properties.
