The death of a Rwandan opposition politician Seif Bamporiki, living in exile in South Africa has been announced.

Bamporiki, was shot dead while delivering furniture to a client on Sunday afternoon in Cape Town, BBC reports.

It has not been discovered if the murder was politically motivated. It has been confirmed that the assailants took mobile phones and wallets before they fled the scene.

So far, no arrests have been made concerning the death of Bamporiki, who was the coordinator of the Rwanda National Congress.

BBC also confirmed from party spokesman, Etienne Mutabazi that a client had made contact with Mr Bamporiki – who runs a bed shop – asking if he had a bed to sell.

The client then asked for the bed to be delivered in Nyanga township and drove with Mr Bamporiki and his associate to the area where the bed was supposed to have been delivered.

Bamporiki was killed by a single shot fired through the window of the vehicle.

It has also been recorded in history that Nyanga township is known to be one of the most dangerous townships in South Africa.

The highest murder rate per annum, has also been recorded in the area at some point.
