National Police Minister Bheki Cele has vowed to find the gunmen who shot dead African National Congress( ANC) local Voting District Co-ordinator Nqobizwe Mkhize in the Mfume area, just outside Durban.
He has called for calm among community members, following the incident. Reports suggest Mkhize and his wife were woken up by the gunmen who instructed her to cover her eyes as they shot Mkhize multiple times.
Nathi Hlengwa and Sbonelo Hlongwane, who were coming back from a local tavern in the area, were also shot dead. Unconfirmed reports suggest they may have been killed because they had seen the suspects and their getaway car.
Meanwhile, Cele has asked community members not to label each murder of an ANC member as political violence. He says an investigation is already underway and police are following multiple leads.
