JOHANNESBURG – The National Freedom Party (NFP) has called on King Goodwill Zwelithini to intervene in political killings and for President Cyril Ramaphosa to declare a state of emergency in Kwazulu Natal.

The NFP was commenting on the murders of ANC former councillor Msawenkosi Mchunu and IFP councillor Sibuyiselo Dlamini.

The party is also concerned about the apparent attempted assassination of National Teachers Union deputy president Allen Thompson.

The NFP says KZN Premier Willies Mchunu has failed to respond to its request to ask the King to intervene as a well-respected elder.

It also wants a state of emergency and SANDF soldiers to be deployed.
