Durban - Two African National Congress members have been killed in the run up to the May 7 elections, the party said on Wednesday.

Supa Zuma, the party's secretary for the Moses Mabhida region, said in a statement that Nkosi Nkwanyana was gunned down outside his home in the Mhlangandlovu area.

Jabulile Ncalane, a party volunteer, was hacked to death in her house a week earlier.

The Mhlangandlovu area is in the uMshwathi local municipality in the KwaZulu-Natal midlands.

Zuma said the ANC condemned the attacks and that to date no arrests had been made.
