2012-07-01 13:01

Johannesburg - The ANC's chief whip in the Ugu district municipality was killed in a drive-by shooting in Manaba, Margate, KwaZulu-Natal police said on Sunday.

"Around 22:00 on Saturday, councillor [Wandile] Mkhize and a friend were walking along a road when they came under attack from unknown men driving in a Toyota Corolla," spokesperson lieutenant-colonel Vincent Mdunge said.

Mkhize was killed in the "heavy gunfire" and his friend critically injured. Mkhize was declared dead on the scene.

The other man was taken to a hospital, the name of which was not disclosed for security reasons.

Mdunge said the motive for the attack was unknown. Police were investigating a case of murder with aggravating circumstances, and one of attempted murder.

No arrests had been made by 09:00 on Sunday.

      The anc has had some great times! The trouble with great times is they can only get worse! Does this shooting mean that the electioneering has started in KZN? Vote DA! No more anc chief whips... no more shootings!

    The ANC remains a terror organisation as evidenced by the constant internal faction fighting and extreme violence which is common.

    Must be case of mistaken Identity .As unacceptable as it is what goes around comes around.

      oomkrummel.krummel - 2012-07-01 14:09

      And they will tell you its politically motivated or a third force, yet farm murders are simple robbery....go figure the logic...sic

  • Hermann - 2012-07-01 13:39

    Maybe the struggle is now turning upon itself. Sad to read about death in this manner. The struggle is over and people should get real.

  • lynn.syme.1 - 2012-07-01 14:04

    What's the difference here? People get murdered in their homes, on the street, in shopping malls - every day! Suddenly it makes news because it's an ANC member?

      lunga.swelindawo.9 - 2012-07-01 15:34

      The difference is,all politicians make news(ANC,DA,IFP members etc)

    welcome to the new south africa, anc style.

  • antin.herinck - 2012-07-01 15:10

    Strange, normally I regret the loss of human life. But as soon as they are ANC, my eyes are so very dry. Perhaps I should look at my own morals. Or perhaps they should should attend to theirs..

  • mthetheleli.ntshobololo.1 - 2012-07-01 17:57

    Why I'm not suprised,KZN & MPUMALANGA uSatan uqgok' ibheshu.

  • koos.meyer.52 - 2012-07-01 18:43

    No loss...

      nkadimeng - 2012-07-01 20:57

      @Koos.meyer.52, been following your comments guy, not sure if you really apply you brains when you comment, obviously that would be if you got any though. It appears as though the only life that matters to you is your own. Is as though you just want to show you linguistic ability, which really has no sense of humanity at all.

  • rob.tubbs.39 - 2012-07-01 18:53

    Where were his 'bodyguards' ?........

      jaysonpaul.beckwith - 2012-07-01 21:27

      Hey \boyo\ councillors don't have body guards.

  • aristar.aristary - 2012-07-01 19:25

    You live by the gun, you die by the gun. I wonder who he pissed off.

  • kevin.day.7370 - 2012-07-01 19:27

    So after 18 years of 'freedom' we are still sorting out political disputes by shooting one another? Pathetic! How can one possibly hold sensible dialogue with someone who believes that a gun can solve the problem? It's clear one cannot reason with such a person - the only thing they understand is the death penalty. You gonna learn!!!

      Lacrimose - 2012-07-01 22:05

      One cannot engage in a battle of wits with an unarmed person. It's all part of the warrior mentality that ANC has been careful to craft and foster over the last 100yrs. Kill or be killed. You are Lions. We are Warriors. Bring me my Machine Gun. Kill the Boers. Death to all White People. Drive Whities into the Sea. Their entire culture and mindset is about death and the past. The concept of tomorrow or future is simply not there. It's just take what we can now in the name of vengeance. If you step out of the paradigm you die.

  • jimzimbo - 2012-07-01 22:06

    Read this slogan in Jhb years ago.."We salute our fallen ANC heroes" below this someone had added.." May many more fall!!"

  • sibusiso.mkoko - 2012-07-01 22:31

    Poor white guy. Oh well, anada 1 bites da dust.

  • Gcwabe.KaMavovo - 2012-07-02 09:24

    RIP Gcwabe.
