FF Plus welcomes arrest of suspects implicated in alleged murder of Mogalakwena councillor in 2019

The FF Plus in Limpopo welcomes the arrest by the Special Investigating Unit (SIU) of suspects implicated in the cold-blooded murder in 2019 of Vaaltyn Kekana, former chairperson of the Mogalakwena Local Municipality's Public Accounts Committee, and the ANC District Secretary, Ralph Kanyane.

Both were murdered in broad daylight in July 2019 shortly before they had to submit a report on corruption in the Municipality.

The murders of Kekana and Kanyane created a sense of powerlessness among the community and certain employees of the Municipality, who have grown tired of fighting against corruption in the Municipality.

The FF Plus's MPL and provincial leader, Marcelle Maritz, who had been serving as a councillor in the Municipality at the time, had a good rapport with Kekana stemming from their joint participation in municipal activities.

He had proven himself to be an honourable individual who shared the FF Plus's view on fraud and corruption in the Municipality.

The suspects will appear in court in Mokopane (Potgietersrus) today.

The FF Plus will keep a very close eye on this matter to ensure that justice is served.
