SALGA expresses shock at the senseless killing of Sedibeng District Municipal Manager, Stanley Khanyile





Posted: 04 October 2020

It is with deep sadness that the South African Local Government Association (SALGA), has learned of the passing of Mr Stanley Khanyile, Sedibeng District Municipal Manager, who was shot and killed on Saturday, 03 October 2020 in Meyersdal.

Mr Khanyile also served as Chairperson of the Gauteng Municipal Manager’s Forum.  In light of this tragic incident, SALGA joins the entire local government community in mourning the death of Mr Khanyile and in expressing its sincere condolences to his family, friends and colleagues.

SALGA would like to point out that this murder underscores the widespread impunity for killings and intimidation of municipal managers and councillors. The association, in the year 2017, released a report on the intimidation and killing of councillors and municipal managers titled Violence in Democracy.

The report revealed that politically motivated killings have been shown to have negative effects on service delivery, the professionalization of local government and are a threat to democracy.

SALGA therefore hopes that the circumstances of Mr Khanyile's death will begin to emerge and that our trusted law enforcement agencies will act swiftly to make sure that those behind this senseless murder are brought to book. May his soul rest in peace.
