The device as discovered on Sunday, made it 3 days after the attack at the mosque by three men armed with guns and knives. One person was killed after his throat was slit, and two others were injured.

Mr Simphiwe Mhlongo, a spokesman for the Directorate for Priority Crime Investigation, told newsmen;"we had a meeting with the explosive unit members, who briefed us on the device they had taken away yesterday. They confirmed that its mechanism is explosive,but at this stage, they haven't gone through analysing what chemicals it is made of."
