Johannesburg - The ANC chief whip in the Ehlanzeni district municipality in Mpumalanga was killed in the Mhala district in the early hours of Wednesday, police said.

Johan Holme Ndlovu was shot in the chest, left hand and buttocks, said police spokesperson Leonard Hlathi.

Ndlovu's body was found in the Edinburgh village near Bushbuckridge in the early hours of Wednesday morning. It was discovered by family members a few kilometres from his home after an unidentified man told his wife where to find him.

"In the early hours of the morning, his (Ndlovu's) wife allegedly called her husband on his cellphone but another man answered," he said.

"While she was checking the number she had dialled, the man phoned her back from her husband's cellphone and told her that if she was looking for her husband she must go to a certain bush where she will find him."

Ndlovu's wife called family members who went to check the area but they could not find him. They went back early on Wednesday morning and found his body, Hlathi said.

Police were investigating a case of murder.

Ndlovu's white Toyota 2002 Corolla was missing.

      Not at all bra, they hijacked him on his way home at around 21h00. He went to drop people who were doing work in his house. Hence they took his Corolla.

    He called her back to tell her where her husband was? What a thoughtful killer... Do you think she'll have a good life on the insurance money?

      I agree, sadly there seems to be no news about this man before today, so time will tell if he was a good man or not

    who needs to be killed before the Government realises that we need to get serious about re-introducing the death penalty ? if society is to have any chance at all we need to legally start killing convicted murderers and rapists who have no place living and being supported by the law abiding residents of this country.

      kilo39....My thoughts precisely..

      cervezab - 2011-01-05 21:32

      some user here, I can't remember who, said the only intelligent thing I ever heard about the death penalty: "The death penalty won't deter criminals, but it will prevent them from doing it again"

    Mr. Ndlovu drove a Toyota 2002, the MEC from Bloem "very young" caught for speeding in a BMW 7 series. Another straight arrow less. It is not who you know but what you have on them that make the difference. Ask the ANC.

      He also had a MEC 2009.

    Some-one wanted his job. From a cadre to a cadaver. Sympathy to his family.

    It is so sad what is happening in Hluvukani. Comrade Ndlovu is a second victim, one ask himself where do this guy man comes from? Something need to be done in that area. RIP comrade.
