Police minister Bheki Cele
Bheki Cele urges law enforcement agencies to track down the killers who are behind political deaths in KwaZulu-Natal.

Police minister Bheki Cele has urged law enforcement agencies to 'pull up their socks' in tracking down the killers behind the deaths of several political leaders on the KwaZulu-Natal south coast or face 'consequence management'.

Cele was speaking from Margate earlier, where he met with police‚ including the head of the Hawks and the special task team to investigate political killings.

His visit to the area comes after the death of ANC branch leader Sifiso Cele‚ who was shot execution-style in full view of his partner and children on Monday morning.

Speaking to Joanne Joseph, EWN Reporter Ziyanda Ngcobo said the issue was being taken seriously, judging from what the police minister and some family members said.

Yesterday two armed men entered the home, pulled away the domestic worker, the children and the wife...told them to lie down while they took Cele to another room where they firstly requested R3000 which he apparently did give it to them. The two men then pulled the children into the bathroom told them not to look at them otherwise they will shoot the children.

Ziyanda Ngcobo, EWN Reporter

The children aged five and ten-years-old were locked them in the bathroom.

[They] then took [Sifiso] Cele into the bathroom and shot him four times. Now the family has described the last moments with Cele where he apparently did not even try and fight back. Now, this raises the question about whether this is truly an armed robbery or whether this is a way to create a decoy and this is what Minister Bheki Cele has also spoken about.
