Supporter shot dead at KZN hostel, says NFP

A woman, believed to be an National Freedom Party​ (NFP) supporter, was shot dead at Durban's KwaMashu Hostel in Durban on Monday, the party said.

NFP leader Zanele KaMagwaza-Msibi said in a statement the woman could not be named until her relatives had been informed.

"I condemn the unprovoked killing of our member who was shot while walking in the hostel street."

Police spokesperson Captain Thulani Zwane confirmed that a woman was shot dead at the hostel around 7pm on Monday. He did not know what her political affiliation was.

"A case of murder was opened. No one has been arrested yet," he said.

Remain calm
Two other women, believed to be NFP supporters, were shot and wounded at the same hostel on Saturday, allegedly by Inkatha Freedom Party (IFP) supporters, KwaZulu-Natal community safety MEC Willies Mchunu said earlier.

KaMagwaza-Msibi extended her condolences to the family of the murdered woman and called on NFP members to remain calm.

"We call on the Independent Electoral Commission to disqualify from participating in the coming general elections any political party whose supporters are found to have fomented political violence," she said.

The NFP was formed in January 2011 in a breakaway from the IFP. – Sapa
