Bredasdorp - DA parliamentary leader Lindiwe Mazibuko's visit to Bredasdorp, in the Western Cape, was disrupted on Monday, allegedly by ANC members, her spokesperson said.
"It was a very disappointing incident," said Siviwe Gwarube. Mazibuko was not assaulted.
She claimed that ANC members shouted and disrupted Mazibuko when she visited the spot where Anene Booysen was found last year.
Booysen, 17, was raped and disembowelled. She died in Tygerberg Hospital in Cape Town on 2 February.
Her attacker, Johannes Kana, was sentenced to two life terms for the crime.
Mazibuko was in the area to outline the Democratic Alliance's plan to fight violent crime.
ANC spokesperson Jackson Mthembu could not be reached for comment.
