The IFP in KwaZulu-Natal is calling on the South African Police Service (SAPS) to arrest the killers who assassinated iNduna yeSilo, Dr Khumalo, within the next 72 hours.
Induna Khumalo was brutally killed yesterday after returning from the Royal Reed Dance ceremony at eNyokeni Palace.
We call on SAPS to act swiftly to bring the perpetrators to justice.
The IFP is extremely concerned about the brutal killings of izinduna, amakhosi and councillors in the province of KwaZulu-Natal.
Police Minister Bheki Cele, together with the National Police Commissioner, must now establish an effective task team that will specialise in investigating all political killings and high-profile cases in KwaZulu-Natal.
The state of lawlessness that exists in our province – and country at large – can no longer be tolerated.
The IFP conveys its deepest condolences to the King of the Zulu Nation, the Prime Minister of the Zulu Nation, the Royal Family, as well as the Khumalo family, on the tragic passing of Dr Khumalo. He served the Royal Household and the Zulu Nation with respect and loyalty. He also served the late King with distinction.
Dr Khumalo was also a confidante of the current AmaZulu Monarch, King Misuzulu kaZwelithini.
The IFP in KwaZulu-Natal also wishes to convey its condolences to Indonsa yesizwe and the entire community of KwaNongoma for the loss of their beloved Induna, Dr Khumalo.
