Another person has been found dead by South African Police Services (SAPS) at the Glebelands Hostel in Umlazi following the establishment of the Moerane Commission.
The victim, a 32-year-old man, was found shot on the premises of the hostel on Wednesday night for what is still an unclear motive.
The Glebelands Hostel has risen to notoriety through the Moerane Commission which has identified it as the site of a series of alleged political killings.
At least 89 people have been murdered since March 2014, most of whom were shot and fatally wounded at the Umlazi residence.
The police’s Thembeka Mbele says a case of murder has been opened but the motive is still unclear.
Independent community activist Vanessa Burger claims this is the second time that the man has been ambushed and shot allegedly by hitmen.
The Moerane Commission of Inquiry investigating political killings has heard how hitmen live at the Glebelands hostel and are receiving weapons from police who are also involved in corrupt activities.
Earlier in the month a key witness testified in anonymity claiming that some members of the African National Congress (ANC) have been involved in these killings.
