Johannesburg - Two men have been arrested for the murders of two ANC branch leaders on the KwaZulu-Natal south coast, police said on Tuesday.

The two men were arrested on Monday, said Colonel Vincent Mdunge.

"They were taken in yesterday afternoon [Monday], and after questioning it was realised there was a direct link between the men and the committing of the offence," said Mdunge.

Dumisani Malunga, 42, and Bheko Chiliza, 39, were shot dead while driving in the Oshabeni area at about 21:30 on Sunday.

The arrested men were expected to appear in the Port Shepstone Magistrate's Court on Thursday.

On Monday, the ANC condemned the shooting of Malunga, the Oshabeni branch chairman, and Chiliza, the branch secretary.

"We are very concerned with the killing of our comrades. This is unacceptable and cannot be tolerated," ANC provincial secretary Sihle Zikalala said in a statement.

"We would like to express shock and disgust at the latest killing and we would also like to send our condolences to members of their families."

In July, ANC councillor Wandile Mkhize was shot dead in a drive-by shooting near his home in Manaba, Margate.

Nhlakanipho Shabane, who was with him at the time, was in a coma for three weeks before dying in hospital.

Two men have been charged for their murders.

    Thank God Julius Malema is no longer an ANC member and he's not from KZN or else those fools would have got him.We still want leaders from Limpopo to rise.

    I wonder why nobody within the DA has started bumping each other off. What filth the cANCer comprises of. I'd personally pay this guy to take out the Fat Boy as well. cANCer and ALL its supporters are pure scum.
