CAPE TOWN - Police are still trying to trace those responsible for the murder of the Cape Peninsula University of Technology (CPUT) head of residences Siyabulela Thwalani.

Thwalani was shot and killed outside a friend's home in Ilitha Park in Khayelitsha over the weekend.

The motive is still unknown.

Thwalani was sitting in his car outside a friend's home in Khayelitsha when gunmen fired at him.

He was shot in the head and face and died on scene.
