ANC BOKONE BOPHIRIMA CONDEMNS VIOLENT PROTESTS IN DITSOBOTLA
26/04/2017
Dakota Legoete

The African National Congress (ANC) in Bokone Bophirima condemns the violent protests that have resulted in damage to property in Lichtenburg, Itsoseng and Blydeville in Ditsobotla Local Municipality.

While we recognise that service delivery concerns are genuine and should be attended to, we would like to stress that it is unjustifiable to use violence to try and get the community's message across. The ANC calls for calm and would like to assure the communities that the movement is aware of the demands in their memorandum, but calls for patience while these demands are being given the attention that they deserve.

The ANC is also disappointed by the damage to property that includes governmnet buildings and private-owned vehicles that have got nothing to do with the delivery of services.

Premier of Bokone Bophirima, Supra Mahumapelo, who is also our movement's Provincial Chairperson, has appointed a high level task team to probe the reasons behind the violence that has marred these protests.

We call on the people of Ditsobotla to cooperate with this task team as it seeks to find a solution to any problems that might have caused the unhappiness in some areas of the municipality. This requires that our communities isolate criminals who take advantage of their genuine concerns to push their own selfish agendas.

The ANC is also saddened by the violence in Coligny, also in Ditsobotla Local Municipality, that is reported to have been caused by the community's anger over the death of a 12-year-old boy allegedly killed by some farmers. We would like to assure the community that as a leader of the people, the ANC also wants justice to be served and we commend the police for the two arrests that they have made in connection with this matter. We appeal to our people of Coligny to calm down now that the two suspects are in custody and are scheduled to appear in court on Friday.

The ANC calls on the police to do their work to deal with criminal elements that might have infiltrated the community.
