DURBAN - Two people have been taken in for questioning following the killing of African National Congress (ANC) councillor candidate Siyabonga Mkhize in Cato Crest, in KwaZulu-Natal, last week.

Mkhize was gunned down on a Friday night.

Police national spokesperson brigadier Vishnu Naidoo said the pair had not been formally charged, but were being interrogated in connection with the case.

“We have taken two people in for questioning at this stage. They are still being questioned and we haven’t really charged any of them as yet. But, of course, when the time is right and we need to pronounce on the outcomes of the questioning of these accused, we will be sure to do so.”
