ANC provincial chief whip killed

Johannesburg - The ANC chief whip in the Ehlanzeni district municipality in Mpumalanga was killed in the Mhala district in the early hours of Wednesday, police said.

Johan Holme Ndlovu was shot in the chest, left hand and buttocks, said police spokesperson Leonard Hlathi.

Ndlovu's body was found in the Edinburgh village near Bushbuckridge in the early hours of Wednesday morning. It was discovered by family members a few kilometres from his home after an unidentified man told his wife where to find him.

"In the early hours of the morning, his (Ndlovu's) wife allegedly called her husband on his cellphone but another man answered," he said.

"While she was checking the number she had dialled, the man phoned her back from her husband's cellphone and told her that if she was looking for her husband she must go to a certain bush where she will find him."

Ndlovu's wife called family members who went to check the area but they could not find him. They went back early on Wednesday morning and found his body, Hlathi said.

Police were investigating a case of murder.

Ndlovu's white Toyota 2002 Corolla was missing.
