Johannesburg - The Diakonia Council of Churches will on Tuesday discuss the prospects of peaceful elections in KwaZulu-Natal.
About 10 people have been killed in the province this year, during preparations for the August 3 local government elections.
On June 9, two women, Phetheni Ngubane, 50, and Badelile Njapha, 60, were shot dead while on their way home after an ANC branch meeting in Imbali, Pietermaritzburg.
Last week, President Jacob Zuma condemned the killings, saying it was time to put the interests of the ANC first. There was no place for violence in a democratic South Africa, he said.
