Durban - A man accused of conspiring to murder ANC councillor Wandile Mkhize appeared in the Ramsgate Regional Court on Tuesday, KwaZulu-Natal police said.

Dumisani Skhakhane, 33, would be back in court on 28 August, Captain Thulani Zwane said.

Mkhize was killed in a drive-by shooting in Manaba, Margate, on 30 July. He was gunned down near his home when he was with his friend Nhlakanipho Shabane, 24.

Shabane was wounded and spent three weeks in a coma before dying in hospital.

Skhakhane was arrested on 7 August.
