Maimane: DA buses damaged in ANC ambushes

2014-05-04 14:29
Johannesburg - Gauteng police on Sunday confirmed reports that buses carrying Democratic Alliance supporters to a rally in Kliptown, Soweto, were stoned.

The DA’s Gauteng candidate Mmusi Maimane said in a statement that hundreds of DA members were being interviewed by police.

He said the buses were damaged in "ANC ambushes".

Three buses were stoned, two of them severely, in Alexandra and near the FNB Stadium in Soweto where the ANC was holding its rally. The FNB Stadium is about 15km away from the Walter Sisulu Square.

Maimane said: "One bus was so heavily stoned that it is no longer usable."

Brigadier Neville Malila said: "We received a report that there were two buses stoned on their way to Kliptown".

The driver of one of the buses was injured and taken to hospital.

No criminal case had been opened by 14:00, and no one had been arrested.

Malila said there no indication of who had stoned the buses.
