CAPE TOWN - Western Cape police on Monday said they are investigating whether the killing of a man in Philippi is politically motivated.

The victim was found in an open field opposite a supermarket, in a Democratic Alliance (DA) T-shirt.

The police's Thembinkosi Kinana says it seems he was stoned to death.

"The man was wearing cream pants, a DA sweater, and beige leather jacket. Police also found stones near his body. However, the motive for this incident is unknown at this stage."
