An ANC member was shot and killed and another wounded in an attack in Nongoma, KwaZulu-Natal, in the early hours of Tuesday, the party said.
It said Ntombi Busisiwe Simelane, a teacher at Nhlanhlayethu High School, was killed in her home.
"Another comrade, Bafanyana Seme, is in a critical condition at the St Benedictine Hospital in Nongoma after being shot during the attacks," the African National Congress in KwaZulu-Natal said in a statement.
The party said it was told that the homes of three ANC members were attacked in the early hours of the morning.
"The assailants first attacked the Simelane home where they killed Comrade Ntombi Busisiwe Simelane. Police found nine cartridges from a pump gun and one AK-47 cartridge at her home," the ANC said.
"The assailants are then said to have moved to KwaHemende where they attacked the Mncube family who all survived the attacks miraculously."
They then moved to KwaSeme where the Seme family was attacked, resulting in the injury of Bafanyana Seme, the ANC said.
Police spokesperson Superintendent Jay Naicker could not immediately confirm the attacks.
The ANC said the attacks come just a day after the killing of another ANC member, uMzinyathi councillor Tony Malunga who was shot and killed in Greytown.
"We are now convinced that our members are under attack from unscrupulous individuals who are not pleased with the inroads the ANC has made in areas considered as former 'no go areas' in KwaZulu-Natal," the party said. - Sapa

How many 'comrades' belong to the 'third force' active in KZN!
Could this not be ongoing tribal warfare!
