Zikalala: ‘Third force’ has influenced pattern of KZN political killings
The ANC In KwaZulu-Natal has admitted that a contestation for political power has contributed to the high levels of violence in the province.
JOHANNESBURG - The African National Congress (ANC) In KwaZulu-Natal has admitted that a contestation for political power has contributed to the high levels of violence in the province.
A delegation of the party’s leadership is at the Moerane Commission of Inquiry which is investigating the underlying causes of political killings in KZN.
The KZN ANC, led by chairman Sihle Zikalala, has told the commissioners that a “third force” has also influenced the pattern of murders.
Zikalala has also acknowledged the role of hitmen from the taxi industry as another problem.
“Of all the political parties, ANC has been the most affected. Out of failure to appreciate objective reality or sheer opportunism; many have sought to conclude that the killing of politicians is the problem emanating from the ruling party.”
