Pietermaritzburg - A man was shot and wounded in Matshana in northern KwaZulu-Natal, police said on Friday.

He was with friends when three suspects approached them at about 22:00 on Thursday, Captain Thulani Zwane said.

"The three suspects fled after they fired shots at the man and his friends."

The man was wounded in his thigh and was taken to a nearby hospital.

No arrests have been made and a case of attempted murder is being investigated.

Police could not confirm the SABC's earlier report that the injured man was a member of the National Freedom Party, and declined to say if the attack was politically motivated.
