Durban - A KwaZulu-Natal man has been arrested in connection with the murder of an ANC councillor who was shot dead in Ulundi, police said on Friday.
“The suspect, 35, was arrested at KwaMashu men's hostel last night (Thursday) after police followed up information about his whereabouts,” Colonel Vincent Mdunge said.
He would appear in the Mahlabathini Magistrate's Court on Monday on murder charges.
On Sunday, African National Congress councillor Makhosonke Msibi, 47, was shot and killed in his home in Ulundi.
Police said a man knocked at the door soon after the councillor had returned home from a meeting in Nongoma. His son opened the door and a man asked to see the councillor.
“The man fired shots at him when he emerged. He tried to run into his bedroom but it was too late... he suffered multiple gunshot wounds and was declared dead at the scene.”
The motive for the shooting was not known.
The provincial commissioner Lieutenant-General Mmamonnye Ngobeni commended the speedy arrest. - Sapa
