NFP councillor killed

2016-03-23 06:00

IT is regarded as a possible politically orientated assassination, the shooting of Msinga Councillor Nompumelelo Zondi on Monday 14 March.
Known as “MaZondi’’, she had been a popular National Freedom Party councillor since 2011. She was found dead in her car outside her home last Tuesday morning. It is suspected she was shot as she parked her car.

NFP leader Zanele Magwaze-Msibi expressed shock at the killing saying that “MaZondi” was a caring woman with a passion to serve the people in the rural area.
She said these continuous moves to assassinate councillors demonstrated the high level of intolerance within and outside political formations.

In yet another shooting, with political overtones, well-known Jeffrey Ngobese of Muden, an ANC member, was targeted as he was driving home last Monday.
Jeffrey told the Greytown Gazette that just after Santa Maria store a vehicle, which had been following him, passed his car, then stopped and men started shooting at him. Fortunately, he was not injured and managed to drive off unharmed in his bullet-ridden vehicle. Jeffrey has opened a case of attempted murder.

Intensive investigations are being carried out by the police into both these cases.
