JOHANNESBURG - Sfiso Ngcobo, the chairman of Abahlali baseMjondolo&39;s in the Ekukhanyeni informal settlement in Durban, has been gunned down.
He was killed by unknown assailants on Tuesday night.
Ngcobo held his last meeting here this past weekend. His deputy, Wiseman Nzimande, claims the local councillor had threatened Ngcobo previously. The @eThekwiniM has labelled Abahlali baseMjondolo’s allegations as baseless and is asking for evidence. AbahlaliMurder pic.twitter.com/mUoQVrbMGh— Dasen Thathiah (@DasenThathiah) May 23, 2018
