The African National Congress (ANC) in the Eastern Cape is shocked and outraged by the assassination of Councillor Nomxolisi Nqwena – Maliwa who served as the Chairperson of Ethics and Members Interest Committee of Mbhashe Local Municipality yesterday afternoon (Friday 17 February 2023).
Comrade Maliwa’s body was found inside her vehicle at Ngcingwane Location in Dutywa with a gunshot wound in her head.
We call on law enforcement agencies to work tirelessly to bring the perpetrators to book. Killing of a public representative is tantamount subversion of democracy because councillors are servants of the people .It is incidents such as this heinous crime that remind us that crime and violence remains a grave challenge in our communities .
The ANC extends its heartfelt condolences to her family, comrades, colleagues, friends, her community that she served with dedication and passion up to this last day. We share their grave sense of loss.
We lower our banner in honour of her passing in the service of the people.
