    Political killings have been on the rise in South Africa in recent years.

    Dozens of people have been murdered in the last two years, with most of the violence concentrated in Kwazulu-Natal province. It is feared there could be more violence ahead of the ruling party's conference in December.

    Members of the African National Congress (ANC) have been particularly targeted in recent months.
