Inkatha Freedom Party member, Mr Alson Mzwakhe Nkosi (44) who was a candidate in Ward 3 in Abaqulusi was gunned down last Friday.
“We condemn this brutal killing of our member in the strongest possible terms. We do not know the motive for the killing as yet and we demand that Task Team that has been set up by Premier Willies Mchunu to investigate the killing of ANC members, must also investigate the killing of Mr Alson Nkosi. This Task Team must extend its scope to include all killings not just the killings of ANC members. Every possible lead and every avenue must be investigated to bring the killers to book. It is unacceptable that as we approach the local government elections in a few weeks, we are witnessing the wanton killing of our people. Mr Nkosi was a leader in his community and had a lot to contribute to governance in the area. We cannot afford to have families torn apart by such violent acts. We need to have stability in all communities so that voters will go out and vote on election day. We convey our sincere condolences to the family and friends of Mr Nkosi and the leadership of the IFP in Abaqulusi,” said IFP National Chairman and Leader in the KZN Legislature, Mr Blessed Gwala.
