ANC BOKONE BOPHIRIMA ANGRY AT THEO VENTER'S MALICIOUS FACEBOOK POST


The African National Congress (ANC) in Bokone Bophirima is angry at North West University lecturer Theo Venter's defamation of our Provincial Chairperson Cde Supra Mahumapelo on social media. In a Facebook post yesterday (Thursday 8 December 2016) Venter posted a story about the Gupta family and claimed that "The friends of the Supra Mahumapelo and Ace Magasule. They even have a mine near Klerksdorp, ready to deliver uranium for the nuclear power stations that we do not need!"

Venter's post is irresponsible and spreading lies about the ANC Provincial Chairperson. Nowhere in the media reports related to the story that Venter attached to his post does the name of our Provincial Chairperson come up or any reference made to his position either in the ANC or in government. That then begs the question as to why Venter saw it fit to drag Cde Supra into the story.

We expect a learned person of Venter's calibre, a university lecturer, to know that you cannot just wake up and decide to taint someone's name simply because you do not like them.

We challenge Venter to produce evidence of the allegations he is making and approach the relevant authorities with that evidence or withdraw his post and apologise to the Provincial Chairperson. Failing which, we have got no choice but to believe that he is deliberately defaming the Provincial Chairperson for his own malicious agenda.

The ANC and its Provincial Chairperson reserve their right to take legal action on the matter.
