Durban – A KwaZulu-Natal ANC councillor was killed and his wife was critically injured when their car was shot at in KwaNongoma on Monday morning.

Both were taken to a nearby hospital. Nyembe was declared dead on arrival. His wife was in a critical condition.

Zuma said party members in the region were devastated by Nyembe's death. He called for police not to rest until they found the perpetrators.

"This is a tragic loss for his family, for the ANC, the people of KwaNongoma and KwaZulu-Natal in general," Zuma said.
