JOHANNESBURG - The family of Jabu Baloyi is devasted at his death.
Baloyi was shot dead in Tshwane, allegedly by a foreign national.
The Tshwane CBD was brought to a standstill on Wednesday and protesters set fire to a foreign-owned building.
“My husband was a caring man. He looked after all of us in this house. I don’t know what to do. It’s very tough. I am deeply hurt,” said Mpho Baloyi.
The provincial transport department says an investigation will be launched into Baloyi’s death
“We have also assured the family about the commitment of the rest of government to get to the bottom of this issue through an investigation to give us the totality of the facts.

Baloyi will be laid to rest on Sunday.
