Makhosandile Ngcobo was allegedly kidnapped on Monday.

The disappearance of Qiniselani Manyuswa Traditional Council’s interim leader, Makhosandile Ngcobo has left those close to him wondering whether his kidnapping could be an attempt to assassinate him.

Ngcobo was abducted at gunpoint by men posing as police officers at his Izingolweni home, on the South Coast, on Monday.

A source close to Ngcobo, who asked not to be named, told The Witness that he was no longer sure of what to believe about the kidnapping because Ngcobo is also in the taxi business.
