KZN ANC Youth League provincial secretary Thanduxolo Sabelo said Moyo’s killing is politically motivated.

“He was a political activist and he has been assassinated,” Sabelo said.

“To us as the ANCYL, we are very clear that these killing of activists have nothing else but political connotations to it. We do believe that the reason for his killing is politically motivated.”

Sabelo said the league is angry that young activists are being killed in broad daylight.

“We have also been very clear that the killers of activists must be removed from power in the ANC and in government,” he said.

The province has been a hotbed for political murders in the last few years.
