Prominent KwaZulu-Natal businessman, Nkululeko Mkhize, was shot and fatally wounded during the murder of five individuals in Richards Bay earlier this week.
Mkhize faced allegations of links to a drug cartel.
The massacre occurred at Mkhize’s Ballito Estate residence on Wednesday.
Francois Schoeman, the CEO of Ballito Estate, remarked on the incident.
Mkhize had previously caught public attention in 2021 when he gifted R1.5 million in cash at a traditional bridal shower, known as “indishi,” in Ulundi.
Insiders also hinted at Mkhize’s reputation as a “tender mafia”, particularly in dealings with Transnet.
