DURBAN - The African National Congress (ANC) in KwaZulu-Natal has confirmed its former deputy secretary and Harry Gwala Executive Mayor Mluleki Ndobe has been arrested in connection with the murder of Sindiso Magaqa.

Magaqa - who was the former ANC Youth League secretary - died in hospital in September 2017 after initially being ambushed in a hail of bullets alongside two councillors in July.

The task team investigating political killings in KZN is understood to have apprehended the municipal manager, two former tactical response team members and a local businessman on Saturday night.

The provincial ANC said it was aware of the arrest of Ndobe and would release a statement on Sunday afternoon.

The reasons for the arrest and whether Ndobe will be charged remained unknown.

Ndobe features third on the ruling party’s provincial nominations list ahead of elections.

The mayor and his four co-accused were expected to appear in court on Monday.
