IFP extends condolences on the passing of comrade Bheki Malembe

The IFP extends our most sincere and heartfelt condolences to the family, friends and loved ones on the passing of Comrade Bheki Malembe, who was tragically shot and killed at his home in Ndabayakhe yesterday.

Comrade Bheki Malembe served as the Chairperson of the IFP Branch in Ward 29 in Ndabayakhe, which forms part of the uMhlathuze Constituency, in King Cetshwayo District in KwaZulu-Natal.

He was a servant leader, an honourable family man, a dedicated community-builder, and a respected comrade in the IFP.

His death has been met with deep sadness, regret and shock, as he was gunned down yesterday in the presence of his wife and two young children.

We call on all law enforcement authorities to act swiftly in their investigation and in their tireless pursuit of justice for the community, his wife and children, as well as to send a clear message that political killings have no place in our country.

The IFP calls on all those who may have any information to come forward and to assist the Police in their investigation.

We must work together to root out criminality and evil in our communities.

We extend our prayers to the families and the entire uMhlathuze community and King Cetshwayo District at large, as just recently a number of comrades have been laid to rest, following similar sudden, tragic and senseless killings.

We hope that the families may find closure in knowing that those responsible for the deaths of our comrades will be brought to book. May Comrade Malembe’s soul forever rest in perfect peace, Lala Ngoxolo. Contact
