Collins Chabane Municipality Mayor, Cllr Moses Maluleke’s child is hospitalized after being shot in an ambush.


The Mayor and his child were shot outside their home at Xikundu village outside Malamulele on Thursday. The Mayor was allegedly killed in an ambush.

It’s alleged that he was shot and killed by an unknown suspect (s). Police haven’t yet provided details about the incident.

Cllr Maluleke has been elected Mayor of the Collins Chabane Municipality in 2018. Maluleke filled the vacancy left by Joyce Bila, one of the seven mayors that the ANC dismissed after some municipalities illegally invested funds in VBS Mutual Bank.

The Collins Chabane Municipality deposited about R120 million in the now liquidated mutual bank.

Then, council speaker, Elvis Lebea, declared Maluleke the mayor following uncontested nominations.


In 2018, Maluleke stated that his administration is committed to transparent financial management. “We remain committed to our objectives of protecting our community well being, sound financial management, of improved governance and administration, integrated local economy and lastly of effective community participation, our focus in line with these strategies are in developing and strengthening the local economy, creating jobs.”
