ANC-WC shocked at killing of councillor`s son

4 November 2003, Tuesday

The ANC Western Cape is shocked at the senseless killing of Councillor Clifford Sitonga`s son Nkosekhaya, who was 18-years-old.

We appeal to the community to assist the police with their investigations in tracking the killer. Anyone who has any information on the whereabouts of the killer must report to the police. He should be brought to book as speedily as possible.

We offer our condolences and will support the family in this time of their bereavement. Already an ANC delegation headed by Provincial Secretary Mcebisi Skwatsha has this morning visited the family.

A gunman entered Sitonga jnr`s home on Monday evening in Khayelitsha and fired two shots from a 9mm pistol, fatally wounding him in the back and neck. He thereafter fled the scene.
