Durban - An Inkatha Freedom Party member was shot outside the Ntuzuma Magistrate's Court on Monday, in full view of police and television cameras.

IFP councillor Mdu Nkosi said he was giving an interview after the appearance of four men in connection with the shooting of an IFP supporter a little more than a week ago at Durban's KwaMashu hostels, when the man was shot and killed.

"I was giving an interview when the e.tv journalist warned me and then I heard two shots," said Nkosi.

He identified the IFP supporter who was killed as Siya Dlamini.

According to Nkosi, a National Freedom Party councillor in the eThekwini Municipality was then arrested and bundled into a police van.

The NFP's provincial secretary Vusi Khoza told Sapa he had been informed of the councillor's arrest.

Police spokesman Colonel Jay Naicker said in a statement that Dlamini sustained one fatal bullet wound. He said a suspect had been arrested and a pistol seized. This would be sent for ballistic testing.

He provided no details about the suspect, but said he would appear in the Ntuzuma Magistrate’s Court soon.

"Who will protect us if this happens right in front of the police?" Nkosi asked.

The four men appearing in court were arrested last Friday in connection with the shooting of Cebisile Shezi, 31, on 6 October.

Shezi, who was wearing an IFP T-shirt, was shot dead near the Thembalihle train station in KwaMashu shortly after Police Minister Nathi Mthethwa addressed IFP supporters at a sports field near the hostels in KwaMashu.

In a separate incident, a woman's face was grazed by a bullet. She was taken to hospital by the police.

The area has been tense since the abduction and killing of IFP councillor Themba Xulu by five men pretending to be police officers from the Pinetown police station.

No one has been arrested in connection with his abduction and killing.

National Freedom Party general secretary Nhlanhla Khubisa said he could not comment because he was not aware of the shooting.
