JOHANNESBURG – KwaZulu-Natal acting Provincial Commissioner Bhekinkosi Langa has set up a task team to investigate the murder of Richmond municipal manager Sibusiso Sithole.

A case of murder was opened after Sithole was shot and killed by two men on Monday.

The police’s Thulani Zwane says the acting provincial commissioner formed a task team to investigate this matter.

“The motive for the killing is still unknown at this stage, that’s why we’re also appealing to the members of the community to please come forward and tell the whereabouts of these suspects.”
