South African Businessman's Killing Associated With Umgeni Water Dealings

8 Feb 2021 by Local Press Report

A prominent businessman at the centre of allegations of the “capture” of Umgeni Water’s board has been shot dead in what appears to have been a targeted assassination. Sibonelo Hertzog Shinga, 51, the sole director of IT consultancy Raminet Technologies and MPS Strategic Solutions, was killed while travelling from a family funeral in Durban to the King Shaka International Airport. Police said this week they were not aware of a motive for Shinga’s killing, but a friend, who asked not to be named, fears that it was related to his dealings with Umgeni Water.
