KwaZulu-Natal - Two ANC branch leaders were gunned down on the KwaZulu-Natal south coast after attending a meeting, the party said in a statement on Monday.
The ANC condemned the shooting of Oshabeni branch chairman Dumisani Malunga and branch secretary Bheki Chiliza.
“We are very concerned with the killing of our comrades. This is unacceptable and cannot be tolerated,” said ANC provincial secretary Sihle Zikalala.
“We would like to express shock and disgust at the latest killing and we would also like to send our condolences to members of their families.”
Police comment could not immediately be obtained, but according to the statement, the two “were sprayed with a hail of bullets while driving back from an ANC meeting”.
On July 30, ANC councillor Wandile Mkhize was shot dead in a drive-by shooting near his home in Manaba, Margate.
Nhlakanipho Shabane, who was with him at the time, spent three weeks in a coma before dying in hospital.
Two men have been charged with Mkhize's murder. - Sapa
