Cape Town - A Parliamentary staff member was reportedly murdered last week.

The DA’s finance spokesman Tim Harris tweeted on Thursday that Parliament’s unit manager, Mkethwa Mkhize, had been killed.

“He was the head of the committee section here in Parliament,” Harris told the Cape Argus on Thursday. “He was incredibly intelligent… he had a very affable way of dealing with the members, assisting us regardless of our political alignment.”

Harris said Mkhize’s death was “heartbreaking”. The circumstances surrounding his death are unclear.

Harris said Mkhize had earlier been reported missing in Durban before his death.

Parliament spokesman Luzuko Jacobs said they had been informed by Mkhize’s family that he had died, but did not know any other details.

Police were unaware of the incident.
