This devastating incident comes just weeks after Shandu miraculously survived a previous attempt on his life during a traditional ceremony in Umbumbulu, south of Durban. The ANC regional secretary, Samorah Ndlovu, expressed deep sorrow and shock at the recurring violence targeting their members, including the recent shooting of councillor Mabhungu Mkhize from the same region.

Ndlovu denounced these barbaric killings and called on law enforcement agencies to work tirelessly to bring the perpetrators to justice.

In response to the escalating threats, the council has initiated steps to secure bodyguards for Shandu, pending a threat analysis by the South African Police Service (SAPS). The need for protection was discussed in a special council meeting, following the fatal shooting of a bodyguard attached to the council’s speaker earlier this year.
