The IFP in KZN Legislature calls for police to leave no stone unturned, following the assassination of uMlalazi Local Municipality Communications Manager, Mr Reginald Bongani Ngema, who was gunned down on Tuesday, 7 September.
Recently appointed into the management position, Mr Ngema was gunned down by unknown assailants, in full view of community members, next to Siza’s Total Petrol Station and Showe College. The assailants allegedly fled the scene in a private car. The same suspects allegedly fired random gunshots near the home of Stan “Magibela” Larkan, the Head of Mpac in uMlalazi Municipality.
On the eve of these shootings, the bodyguard of the King Cetshwayo District Municipality’s Municipal Manager was also gunned down at EShowe Mall.
The IFP is deeply concerned by these violent killings, especially considering that they are being committed in broad daylight, in full view of bystanders.
These criminals are taking advantage of our weak and ailing safety and security system. We call for any possible witnesses to come forward and work with police to bring the perpetrators to book. The IFP further urges communities to work together to root out crime in their areas, and to cooperate with police where needed.
