Police have confiscated the laptop used by a Western Cape DA councillor to establish whether he had loaded child pornography on it, The Times reported on Tuesday.

Police spokesman Captain Mzikayise Moloi said the Swellendam council-owned laptop had been sent for tests.

The ANC laid a charge against the councillor on May 2, and asked the municipality to investigate claims that he watched child pornography at work.

"We are waiting for the outcome of the tests. There is an allegation that he loaded child pornography on the laptop, that is why the laptop has been seized," Moloi was quoted as saying.

The ANC last week claimed the allegations against the councillor had been reported to the council speaker and senior DA office-bearers, but that no action had been taken.

"Instead, the DA has been trying its utmost to sweep this sex scandal under the carpet," it claimed.

Themba Thebele, Overberg region ANC secretary said on Monday that despite several request for action to be taken against the councillor, municipal authorities had done nothing.

Swellendam mayor Nicholas Myburgh said the speaker's office was investigating the matter.

"[The councillor] will also get an opportunity to present his side," Myburgh said.

He said the councillor was still at work.
