WATCH: ANC member attacked at a Branch General Meeting in Nkomazi sub-region

A video has been circulating on social media where one of the African National Congress members was attacked. 

The violent act took place in Nkomazi sub-region where there was a Branch General Meeting. The ANC issued out a statement distancing itself from the act and described it as anti-ANC. 

“This did not only disrupt a constitutional gathering of the ANC, but took away lives of people. While the ANC is busy with it’s own investigation to get more insight on the incident, we request the South African Police Service (SAPS), to investigate this matter speedily and bring all those involved to book,” read the statement. 

It further went on to say that the incident was not just an act of criminality but a coordinated activity to disrupt the functioning of the ANC in the province.

“Especially in this process of BGMs leading up to the Regional and Provincial Conferences.” The ANC also sent condolences to the family of the deceased.
