Durban - A "culture of impunity” has been blamed for the continued murders of politicians in the KwaZulu-Natal.
This as ANC activist Sifiso Mlambo became the latest victim in Esikhawini on Wednesday night.
Mlambo, the ANC Msizi Dube branch secretary, was murdered in the Empembeni area of Esikhawini.
KZN violence monitor Mary de Haas said there was a culture of impunity and people sensed that because they had carried out several murders without being apprehended, they could continue to get away with their actions.
She said it would be premature to speculate on the motive behind Mlambo’s murder, although the fact that he was an ANC member did raise political motives.
