Musician murdered

Police in Gingindlovu in northern KwaZulu-Natal have launched a massive search for the suspects involved in the murder of a local musician.

Themba Mpanza, 43, was shot and killed by unknown attackers on Thursday at his home in Mahubi Reserve.

Police spokesman Jay Neicker said Mpanza sustained a single gunshot wound in his left shoulder and died on the scene.

Neicker said the police did not think the motive for the attack was robbery because nothing was taken from the house. - Sne Masuku
