Cosatu condemns Mkhize murder

2012-07-03 17:40

Johannesburg - Cosatu on Tuesday condemned the murder of ANC Hibiscus Coast municipality councillor Wandile Mkhize.

"It is very worrying that comrade Mkhize had informed the police that he had been receiving death threats," Congress of SA Trade Unions spokesperson Patrick Craven said.

"And that he had sent SMS's to his comrade [Sports and Recreation Minister] Fikile Mbalula on Saturday night, expressing his concern at divisions within the ANC."

Cosatu demanded that the police find Mkhize's killer. He was killed in a drive-by shooting in Manaba, Margate, at about 22:00 on Saturday.

The Witness reported that Mkhize sent Mbalula an SMS about unity in the party at 21:08 on Saturday, just before he was murdered.

Mkhize was a former ANCYL regional leader. Last year, he unsuccessfully contested the post of league secretary general against Sindiso Magaqa. Magaqa has been suspended from the ANCYL for a year.

      Perhaps this is a blessing in disguise. Things can't get much worse than what it is now - refering to the running of the Municipalities and the quality of the Mayors, Managers and financial admin personal for the rediculous salaries they get.

      Alliances come and go with the winds of change. If you had true unity it would be one party, not 3 groups each with their own agendas.

    He informed the police about death threats? does it make sense that you reporting at police station a threat being killed but you haven't got suspects? I'm Sure they asked him that if there is anyone that he suspect to be behind his killing
