NFP leaders on hitlist, says party

2011-08-08 20:06
Durban – The National Freedom Party claimed on Monday there was a hitlist which had the names of top NFP leaders on it, after two party leaders were shot dead in separate incidents.

Thintabantu Mthembu was shot in KwaNgenetsheni near Vryheid and Gundu Makhanya was shot just outside his home in Chatsworth, outside Durban, NFP spokesperson Zanele Cele said.

She said the attack on the two was fuelled by “violence talks” from leaders of a certain political party.

“According to information we received from some intelligence sources, Mthembu was on top of a circulating hitlist which has names of top NFP leaders in the Zululand District.

“NFP suffered a double blow this past Sunday following the murder of two leaders,” said Cele.

Makhanya was also an NFP leader in the eThekwini Municipality. Mthembu was senior NFP member and traditional headman, she said.
