Johannesburg - A couple, both ANC officials, was shot and killed in their vehicle in Buffalo Flats in East London on Sunday morning.

The pair, identified as Mzuvukile and Ncediswa Nkatha, were sitting in their car chatting to another couple outside the vehicle in the early hours of Sunday morning, when two suspects approached the vehicle.

Police spokesperson Lieutenant Colonel Mtati Tana, said the gunmen initially opened fire on the couple standing outside the car at around 01:45.

"The woman managed to run away, but the man was shot and is in a critical but stable condition in hospital," said Tana.

Tana said the gunmen then shifted their attention to the Nkathas, firing into the vehicle several times, killing them on the spot.

Tana said police had opened a case of murder and attempted murder, but no arrests had yet been made.
