Johannesburg - Five men were arrested in the early hours of Friday morning in connection with the murder of Ehlanzeni district municipality chief whip Johan Holme Ndlovu, Mpumalanga police said.

"The men were arrested in three different homes in Nyongane near Hazyview," Captain Leonard Hlathi said.

"Two cellphones allegedly belonging to the deceased were found in their possession and a firearm. The firearm was the murder weapon alleged to have been used to kill Ndlovu," he said.

Ndlovu was shot, a few kilometres from his home, in the chest, left hand and buttocks in the early hours of Wednesday.

Ndlovu's body was found by family members in some bush in Bushbuckridge after an unidentified man told his wife where to find him.

The men were expected to appear in the Mhala Magistrate's Court on Monday, Hlathi said.

      @ Tshifhiwa. Why politicize everything, f@#k why? The comment is negative I agree, but aimed at the ANC and not at black or white. As far as I know there is whites in the ANC as well. I think everyone is just sick and tired of the lack of governance, it is not aimed at black, white coloured, etc. Some of you guys are so obsessed with race that you even tolorate or support poor governance just because you think you must devend it based on a racial issue. Same goes for certain whites that always overreact based on their racial fears. It is always white and black - f@#k, what about the colourds? Soon they will have an inferiority complex because everything is always about what and black.

    How many more people must be killed in Mpumalanga relating to what Josh has said. And funny that they are all ANC members. Is there some remote chance that these are political killings being performed by people in Mpumalanga government. Nothing more has been heard of the whistle blower who might have been poisoned, or Josh. Or about the case against Mr Africa the Sunday times reporter.

    Both blacks and whites who raced to pull the race card in each and every comment are no brainer and idiots and have inferiority complex, for Petes' sake please grow up this 2011.
