Pretoria - An ANC ward 37 councillor Siphiwe Montlha was shot and killed on Tuesday night around 10pm, allegedly outside his Soshanguve extension 5 home.
Police spokesperson Colonel Lungelo Dlamini said the police were investigating a case of murder and attempted murder after the councillor was shot and another man survived the attack.
Montlha was allegedly shot near his car as he was walking home. His passenger was allegedly later shot in the leg and wounded after getting out of the car and trying to run from the scene.
The passenger was allegedly discharged from hospital and was co-operating with the police to help arrest their assailants.
Earlier this year, Montlha was instrumental in assisting several elderly people whose RDP houses were left incomplete for over 12 months after an "incompetent" contractor was sacked.
