ANC marchers arrested - police

2014-02-12 14:37
Johannesburg - Four people wearing ANC T-shirts were arrested on Wednesday during the DA march in Johannesburg, Gauteng police said.

"They were arrested for public violence," spokesperson Colonel Katlego Mogale told reporters.

Matters turned violent as Democratic Alliance members arrived in Rissik Street, where ANC supporters allegedly threw bricks at police and DA members.

"Our members [police] were stoned and petrol bombed. The stones were coming from the northerly direction of Rissik Street," said Mogale.

DA supporters dispersed, but there was still a heavy police presence in the Johannesburg CBD. Mogale said police would keep an eye on the situation and monitor ANC supporters gathered at Luthuli House.

Police were not aware of any injured people, she said.

ANC spokesperson Jackson Mthembu claims that his party’s members were well behaved during the DA’s march, saying he didn’t see any violence.

"I only see people running and marching," he told Sapa.

"If there was any violence, we would condemn it... but from where I am seated our member have been well behaved. There was no threat from ourselves."
