This meeting comes after recent killings, including the death of African National Congress (ANC) activist Sifiso Cele who was murdered on the south coast in front of his family.

Political Analyst, Lukhona Mnguni says the genesis of these killings stems from inter-party political dynamics and tensions within political organisations.

Or if you go back a few years when the National Freedom Party (NFP) was launched as a break away from the Inkatha Freedom Party (IFP), there was a bit of wrangling for power between the IFP and NFP but it quickly moved into the internal dynamics within the NFP when they had to go towards their own conference.

Mnguni adds that what has been in the spotlight in recent years is that the highest number of people that die are associated with the ANC.

Whether they have been councillors, branch chairpersons and secretaries or regional leaders, I mean an ANC youth league regional leader in recent times passed away.

Lukhona Mnguni, Political Analyst

When you look within the ANC as to what is happening, there are drivers of cause that lead to these differences. But at the heart of it is that the ANC seems to no longer has mechanism to build tolerance within its structures.

Lukhona Mnguni, Political Analyst

He says it also seems that the people that lead factions within the ANC know that they stand to benefit. In some cases, the leaders of these factions are not in command or in control of their factions.

Listen below to Lukhona's Mnguni's full analysis on the political killings in the KZN:
