The murder of 30-year-old Nkanyiso Mathe has been described as “senseless” by those who knew the government official.

Mathe was shot dead while inside a car on Church Street, in the Pietermaritzburg CBD, on Wednesday afternoon.

While he lived in a flat in Pietermaritzburg, Mathe was originally from Durban but worked in the city at the KwaZulu-Natal Department of Sports and Recreation. He was shot multiple times while inside a grey VW Polo, near the Laager Centre.
