EFF Leader In Shock As Another Comrade Shot Dead In KZN

Economic Freedom Fighters Kwa-Zulu Natal provincial secretary general, Vusi Khoza has expressed shock after another councillor was shot dead in Kwa-Zulu Natal province in suspected political killing.

This comes only a week after ANC councillor was gunned down outside his home in Kwa-Zulu Natal. There seem to be a war being wagged against political comrades in the province.

Vusi Khoza questioned what was really wrong in the province which has come to be known as the province with the highest number of cases related to political killings. Prior to the local government elections, several ANC members and those who were set to contest were gunned down in different circumstances.

"Amajuba District Speaker Councillor Mdima shot dead, about a week after eThekwini Ward 103's Councillor Mkhize was also murdered. What the hell is wrong with you KZN..?" Vusi Khoza asked.


It is shocking to many that almost a week after an ANC councillor in eThekwini, Minenhle Mkhize, was killed, another councillor has suffered the same fate. Reginald Ndima of Inkatha Freedom Party, the speaker of Amajuba district municipality in Newcastle was shot and killed at his home this morning.

Critics however argue that until the issue of tenders is ended and the state capacity is created, people will develop interest of serving the people. They argue that as it stands there seem to be a culture of people killed over whistle blowing about corrupt tender projects. Those in power who might be corrupt see the ones with the urge to serve people whole heartedly as an irritation, and interrupting the looting.

It was recently revealed that several councillors are now fearing for their lives following these killings and were requesting security. It is not yet clear who might be behind the killings, but since they are targeting politicians in the province, it might point out to be something to do with political battles.
