Rodgers says Msomi has been receiving death threats over the past months.

The councillor has over the last few months been receiving death threats and just recently a bullet was neatly placed at her front door. In the incident involving the cartridge being placed at the councillors front of the house. KZN has a horrific record of the murder of councillors, hence the commission of the Moerane investigation into political killings in the province.
