The African National Congress (ANC) in the Eastern Cape has received the shocking news of the brutal murder of Ward 43 Councillor at Kariega in Nelson Mandela Bay, Comrade Andile Andries and ANC Branch Secretary, Comrade Lubabalo Keso. Both comrades were shot and killed this afternoon at Councilor Andries house at Kariega.
The killing of these two comrades represents barbarism of the worst order. We strongly condemn this incident, as it has no place in our democracy. These were activists who had the community’s interests at heart.
We call on all members of our movement and the broader community of Nelson Mandela Bay at this stage to be calm. We also strongly call on law enforcement agencies to leave no stone unturned in their efforts to apprehend the perpetrators of this ultimate act of cowardice.
We convey our heartfelt condolences to the Andries and Keso families, relatives and the community of Nelson Mandela Bay. We lower our banner in honour of their passing in the service of the people.
May their souls rest in peace.
