ANC NW CALLS FOR CALM IN BOITUMELONG TOWNSHIP - BLOEMHOF
08/04/2014
Dakota Legoete

The African National Congress in North West calls for calm and respect for law in Boitumelong Township, where violent protesters torched six houses including that of the Mayor, yesterday, 07th April 2014.

The houses of two municipal officials, two police officials and the mayor's neighbour's house and the community hall were also set-alight and a police nyala was petrol bombed. The protesters also disrupted the reopening of schools.

The protesters barricaded the N12 road with burning tyres and pelted police officers with stones leading to two police officials sustaining injuries.

The ANC condemns such acts of provocation, intimidation, public violence and criminality by some of the protesters. Whilst the public has the Constitutional right to protest, these very rights do not imply that people must be violent, destroy private and public property, attack police and intimidate others.

We therefore urge the community of Boitumelong to act in accordance with the law because the South African law applies without impunity.

Public violence cannot be an alternative to address the needs of our communities but can only reverse progress on services already done thereby reverse community development. Negotiations remain the only solution when disenchantment reigns.

We urge government to urgently convene a meeting with the communities of Boitumelong in an effort to restore stability in the area and to agree on a plan to resolve the impasse.

The ANC-led government ensured that laws protecting fundamental human rights are always guaranteed, including the provision of decent services to our communities.

We congratulate the South African Police Services for acting swiftly, arresting more than 100 of the protesters since the protests began last week, Wednesday. They have been charged with public unrest and malicious damage to property. Sixteen of them already appeared in the Bloemhof Magistrate's Court.
