Durban - The Democratic Alliance in KwaZulu-Natal has sent heartfelt condolences to the family of African National Congress councillor Zodwa Sibiya, who was shot dead at Glebelands Hostel, Umlazi, Durban, on Saturday night.

“Sibiya was one of the dedicated councillors who stood firm on fighting corruption in the hostel and the whole of eThekwini,” DA KwaZulu-Natal leader Zwakele Mncwango said on Sunday.

“It is a sad day in eThekwini and the whole province when we lose someone who is steadfast on protecting good governance. As the official opposition, we wish to send our condolences to the governing party, the family, and friends of the late councillor. She will be sorely missed,” he said.
