DA Establishes Special Task Team to Investigate Councillor Ndlovu's Murder

In response to concerns over the pace of investigations led by the South African Police Service (SAPS), the Democratic Alliance (DA) has formed a dedicated political task team to look into the tragic murder of Councillor Nhlalayenza Ndlovu, the DA’s chief whip in the uMngeni Local Municipality in KwaZulu-Natal.

Comprising seasoned experts who have previously handled investigations into political assassinations globally, the newly appointed team aims to bring a fresh perspective to the case, expressing skepticism about the effectiveness of the ongoing police investigations.

The DA voiced its dissatisfaction with the SAPS, citing cases like the recent deaths of rapper AKA and his friend Tibz as examples that have eroded their trust in the police’s ability to swiftly solve such cases.

“The independent investigative task force combines the experience of South African detectives with top investigators from both the FBI and Scotland Yard, who successfully brought the perpetrators of political assassinations to justice worldwide,” explained DA spokesperson Solly Malatsi.

For security reasons, the DA has opted not to disclose the identities of the task team members. The party, along with the Umngeni Local Municipality, has announced a R200,000 reward for anyone providing information that could lead to the apprehension of the suspects.

This move by the DA underscores a growing trend of political parties seeking alternative investigative routes amid concerns over the efficacy of traditional law enforcement processes. The development highlights the urgency and significance the DA places on resolving the murder of Councillor Ndlovu and ensuring justice is served.
