City man dies in hail of bul­lets

Zululand Observer - Monday - - ZO NEWS - Orrin Singh/Con­nie Harry

IN what is be­lieved to be a brazen as­sas­si­na­tion, an Aquadene res­i­dent was bru­tally mur­dered in his drive­way on Fri­day evening. Ini­tial re­ports in­di­cate that 31-year-old Tha­bani Ndlela was shot at least 16 times while in his ve­hi­cle. The in­ci­dent oc­curred at ap­prox­i­mately 8pm when res­i­dents in Fi­cus Fern street heard mul­ti­ple gun­shots. Ndlela is said to have driven into his drive­way when an un­known gun­man ap­proached and fired at him. The sus­pect re­port­edly fled the scene in a white ve­hi­cle. The mo­tive for the at­tack is un­known at this stage Ndlela is said to have been in­volved in the taxi in­dus­try and was also elected to a mayor’s steer­ing com­mit­tee.
