Another top member of the African National Congress (ANC) whose name is Thembinkosi Zoleka, has been gunned down by unknown men.
This is according to state police who are at the moment investigating the death of the ANC PR councillor Thembinkosi Zoleka who was shot and killed on Thursday Night.
Zoleka represent the party in the KwaZulu-Natal South Coast. He was a PR councillor for Ray Nkonyeni Municipality.
Police spokesperson Captain Nqobile Gwala, who spoke to the media on the case said Margate police was called out to Phillip Road just before 00:00 hour where they found Thembinkosi Zoleka lying lifeless.
“They proceeded to a scene where they found the body of a 47-year-old man inside the residential premises with gunshot wounds to the head. The motive for the killing and the suspects are unknown. Investigation is continuing.”
Zoleka will be the fourteenth – or more- member of the ANC killed in one year. Twelve of the party leaders were killed just few months before the commencement of the August 3 Local Government election.
This comes at the time the party leader, Jacob faced a motion of No confidence debate which was meant to see his end as the South African President.
While the members of the parliament battled with strategies to win the debate, the ANC women league who had been strongly backing Zuma went on singing praises of Zuma and rubbishing opposition move.
The women League at a time described the failed motion of no confidence – brought by the Democratic Alliance – as nothing but a strategy to liquidate the ANC.
The women league said this after 214 MPs, mainly from the ANC, voted against the motion and 126 voted in its favour.
“The DA and its allies are under pressure to deliver on the mandate of imperialist forces to advance regime change in SA. The aim is to have white supremacy rule which will economically marginalise black people and not allow land redistribution programmes in SA,” ANC Women’s League secretary general Meokgo Matuba said as she welcomed the rejection of the motion.
