Two NFP members have been killed in an ambush and another has been seriously injured in Msinga, northern KwaZulu-Natal, a party official said on Wednesday.

"Bongani Shelembe, chairman of the Msinga branch, and youth secretary Lungisile Zuma were shot dead when they were driving back from the party's constituency meeting on Tuesday," said National Freedom Party general secretary Nhlanhla Khubisa.

Thulephi Mbatha was seriously injured.

Khubisa did not have the exact details of what happened and did not want to speculate on the motive.

Colonel Jay Naicker said the car was shot at on the way to Keate's Drift around 5pm on Tuesday. Police were investigating.

"As a party we would like to express shock and disgust at the senseless killing of Shelembe and Zuma. We would also like to send our condolences to the members of the families," said Khubisa.

He called on party members to exercise restraint and let the police handle the matter.

Khubisa said the party would ask provincial community safety and liaison MEC Willies Mchunu to send police to the area.
