The ANC in the province called on police to end the violence. 

"This came at a time where we thought peace was a primary focus. Nevertheless, this happened. The family and the community are so distraught. We are very much disturbed by these barbaric acts in the recent past. You will recall on Monday another councillor was killed. Comrade Mchunu was also killed when the family was present," said ANC KZN member, Sithembiso Mshengu.
