ANC members in KZN to meet over high profile political killings

Two mayors linked to political separate killings in KwaZulu-Natal are expected to appear in different court on Monday. 

Sindiso Magaqa

Harry Gwala District Mayor Mluleki Ndobe is expected to apply for bail - where he has been linked with the murder of former African National Congress (ANC) Youth League Secretary General Sindiso Magaqa in 2017. 

Ndobe is expected to appear in uMzimkhulu Magistrate's Court.

Newcastle Mayor Ntuthuko Mahlaba is in court for allegedly being linked with the 2016 assassination of ANC Youth League regional Chair Wandile Ngubeni.

The ANC's Zweli Mkhize says the governing party has not expected political killings to take place in the province, however, they support the investigations by the police.

Mkhize was speaking at the ANC's Manifesto briefing on Legislature and Governance in Johannesburg on Sunday.

He adds that investigations will continue without fear or favour.

"So, we are supportive of all of these investigations and of course if there's any further work that needs to be done the ANC from Luthuli house will have to reflect on," says Mkhize.

ANC Acting Spokesperson, Dakota Legoete, says the governing party has instructed the Provincial Executive Committee (PEC) to hold a meeting and outline how they are going to deal with the official implicated in the murder of Magaba.

Legoete hopes the PEC will take the right decisions that are in the interest of the residents of the affected areas. 

"We cannot have serving mayors who are in custody because the community needs services on a daily bases," says Legoete.
