Top lawyer found dead at his home
DURBAN advocate Mvuseni Ngubane was found dead at his home in Pinetown at the weekend, KwaZulu-Natal police said
Lieutenant-Colonel Vincent Mdunge said Ngubane was found with a gunshot wound to the head at about 3pm on Saturday. He said there was a pistol next to the body.
"Police found a suicide note near his body. Some parts of the letter were not readable due to bloodstains."
Mdunge said family members found Ngubane on the back seat of his Mercedes-Benz in the garage.
Ngubane handled high profile cases, including that of convicted drug dealer Cheryl Cwele, the wife of State Security Minister Siyabonga Cwele.
The SABC reported that Ngubane had served on various boards and committees. He was a former president of the Black Lawyers' Association and chaired the Law Society of South Africa.
