ANC provincial secretary Oscar Mabuyane says the party is “disgraced and shamed to be at the centre” of the killing of two women in East London.
The party’s Buffalo City Metro Ward 13 councillor Nokulunga Matiwane and her husband, Mthuthuzeli, have been charged with the murders.
Mabuyane, accompanied by MEC for safety and liaison Weziwe Tikana, yesterday visited the families of Nomboniso Twana and Nombulelo Mpitipiti who were shot dead last week in Dice, Reeston, allegedly by Mthuthuzeli.
It is alleged that Mthuthuzeli had been collecting R200 a month from the woman in return for being given jobs on the Extended Public Works Programme (EPWP) by his wife.
Yesterday eight other women told Mabuyane they were living in fear of their lives as they had also been required to pay for EPWP jobs.
