Cops call for calm ahead of Inchanga funerals
Residents in Inchanga will lay to rest two people killed in political violence.
JOHANNESBURG - KwaZulu-Natal police have called for calm as Inchanga residents prepare to lay to rest two people killed in political violence.
Last week African National Congress supporter Xolani Ngcobo and local South African Communist Party secretary Nontsikelelo Blose were murdered, allegedly due to conflict between the two parties.
A joint memorial service, which was meant to be held for the two, was put on hold this week due to ongoing tensions in the area.
The police's Thulani Zwane says they will be deploying more officials to the village today.
"The police will be monitoring the funeral and we're appealing to the community to behave themselves."
