Johannesburg - The ANC has praised the police's swift response in arresting a man linked to the murder of an ANC councillor in Ulundi, KwaZulu-Natal.

"The African National Congress in KwaZulu-Natal commends the police for the arrest of a suspect for the murder of comrade Makhosonke Msibi," spokesperson Sicelo Khuzwayo said on Friday.

The 35-year-old man was taken into custody in the KwaMashu men's hostel on Thursday night, police spokesperson Vincent Mdunge said.

Khuzwayo said hostels seemed to be a hiding place for criminals and urged police to pay special attention to them.

"In a separate incident, suspects from Ulundi, who are accused of killing the ANC branch leader Comrade Sthembiso Ngidi in eThekwini’s Ward 75, were hiding in Jacobs hostel last month," Khuzwayo said.

Msibi's funeral would be on Saturday, he said.

The man would appear in the Mahlabathini Magistrate's Court on Monday on a murder charge.

On Sunday, Msibi, 47, was shot and killed in his home in Ulundi.

Provincial police commissioner Lieutenant General Mmamonnye Ngobeni also applauded the speedy arrest.
