ANC supporter murdered in KZN
The woman was stabbed to death after an alleged standoff between the IFP and ANC.
KWAZULU-NATAL - A woman has been killed in what is believed to be election-related violence in KwaZulu-Natal.
The African National Congress (ANC) supporter was stabbed to death in KwaDukuza, north of Durban late on Wednesday night.
It is alleged the stabbing was sparked by a standoff between supporters at ANC and Inkatha Freedom Party (IFP) tents near a polling station.
The stabbing comes as KwaZulu-Natal experienced the most violence-free election yet.
KwaZulu-Natal violence monitor Mary de Haas says voting day was relatively violence free, barring the isolated incident.
She attributed this to a heightened police and observer presence.
