Eastern Cape police have formed a high level task team to investigate the murder of ANC councillor-in-waiting, Zolile Malangeni, and his government employee wife Ntombovuyo this week.

Police spokesperson Colonel Mzukisi Fatyela said today the couple was killed in their home in Mayamuleni, Tsolo, on Thursday night, with two small children present.

The children were both 2 years old.

Malangeni's wife died at the house, and Malangeni died later in hospital. The children were not physically harmed.

Fatyela said nobody has been arrested yet, but the provincial commissioner of police, the cluster commander and members of the specialist police unit the Hawks visited the scene on Friday and have formed a task team to investigate the murders.
