The Economic Freedom Fighters (EFF) ward 20 councilor candidate in Msunduzi Municipality was killed by gunfire. Thulani Shangase was shot in the Herwood neighborhood of Caluza, Pietermaritzburg, on Sunday afternoon. Shangase was shot as he was due to meet with party operatives, according to the EFF Umgungundlovu Region Chairperson Mzwakhe Mpulo.

Mpulo stated that he went to the business where they were supposed to meet. "People who were there at the meeting informed us that he got a phone call and walked outside to answer it, and that's when he was shot," he added. Mpulo stated that they cannot confirm whether his death was connected to politics, but they are waiting for the police to investigate what may have led to the killing.

"We know there is a lot of political intolerance in the Edendale region, but we don't know if this is connected to politics."

"This is a big setback for the party." He was a diligent worker who was motivated to assist [the residents of] Ward 20.

"We were hoping that the EFF would win ward 20 in the next local government elections."

He stated that they will not rest until they get the truth about why he was murdered. He stated that they will press the police to conduct a comprehensive investigation into the incident. Mpulo stated that they will be paying a visit to the family today. Sergeant Sfiso Gwala of the Plessislaer Authorities Department claimed that police are looking into a murder investigation. No one has been apprehended.
