ANC, SACP commit to restoring peace in Inchanga
A joint memorial service for two people who were killed in political violence in the area has been postponed.
A joint memorial service for two people who were killed in political violence in the area has been postponed to this weekend as the situation there remains tense.
On Monday, ANC supporter Xolani Ngcobo was stoned and shot by an angry mob in front of his family.
His murder follows the killing of the SACP's local secretary Nontsikelelo Blose just the day before.
It's believed the violence was fuelled by factions between the two parties.
Yesterday, the provincial government met with both parties and the police in an effort to find ways to bring calm to the area.
The community safety's Sipho Khumalo said: "It emerged there's still a need for a broader and a more intense engagement with the communities and the leaders of the area. We felt that for us to be able to give more time to do that we need to call off this memorial service."
