DA strongly condemns Sedibeng protests

February 24, 2015

The DA Gauteng strongly condemns the current protest action by two opposing ANC factions in the Vereeniging central business district.

 

According to reports, the protesters are demanding the resignation of district mayor Mahole Mofokeng, accusing him of corruption and nepotism. Protestors are causing havoc in the city centre by burning tyres and have brought business to a halt.

The DA strongly condemns violence in any form, and we call on the ANC to deal with its internal problems as a matter of urgency – as residents are being negatively affected by the spill-over into the municipality’s ability to deliver services.

 

The ANC must separate the party from the state, and ensure that internal struggles do not affect residents and business government is meant to serve. (I will insert fotos sent)

 

The DA will continue to monitor the situation and ensure that the ANC is held to account for its reckless behaviour.
