JOHANNESBURG - The ANC says all those who are implicated in KwaZulu-Natal political killings should be arrested.

Umzimkhulu Mayor Mluleki Ndobe and four other accused appeared in court on Tuesday in connection with the murder of former ANC Youth League secretary-general Sindiso Magaqa.

Mbalula said the ANC had been calling for the arrest of masterminds.

Mbalula further stated that the party will take serious steps against Ndobe, who was number three on the party’s list to the KZN legislature.

However, the image of the ANC has been tainted.

“It is a serious matter that requires action, that action may result in him being removed, that action may result in him not campaigning for the ANC.

"That action will be taken,” said Mbalula, who is the ANC head of elections.
