The police in Mpumalanga are investigating the death of Speaker of the Nkomazi Local Municipality Victor Mashabane (55). According to the latest information Mashabane was kidnapped at the gate of his house in Kamhlushwa, near Tonga at night. An unknown number of men allegedly forced him into his vehicle as he stepped outside to open his gate and left with him in the vehicle. They found his body and the vehicle with Mashaba apparently having been shot.
Police are not sure yet if Mashibane death is political motivated as Nkomazi is an ANC-run municipality and in other provinces, especially in KwaZulu-Natal, ANC councilors have also been killed recently.
Police is appealing to anyone who may have information to contact Detective Captain Pat Banda on 082 449 0291.
