Cop, soldier 'stalked ANCYL official'

2012-01-25 14:18

Polokwane - A police officer and a soldier were arrested in Polokwane after they allegedly stalked an ANC Youth League official for several days, Limpopo police said on Wednesday.

"We arrested them after we received a call that the complainant's car was being followed by [another] car," Brigadier Hangwani Mulaudzi said.

"We dispatched our members to investigate on Tuesday evening, and Wednesday we arrested the two suspects."

The two were allegedly following ANCYL Limpopo provincial secretary Jacob Lebogo.

'Political war'


The league claimed the incident was part of a "political war" in the province, and that the men were trying to intimidate Lebogo ahead of the league's provincial conference.

"Obviously we feel unsafe because some of our members have also been threatened [and] followed into their houses by unknown people," Limpopo ANCYL chairperson Frans Moshwane said.

"We cannot divorce this [from the] political situation in the country and the province."

Mulaudzi said police were investigating whether the men were linked to a syndicate terrorising politicians in the province.

The men were not armed, but several "dangerous weapons" were found in their car.

      A brain? Perhaps some common sense? More likely the YL members where followed by estranges spouses wanting maintenance payments. Intimidating I know but someone has to pay maintenance.

      Probably pepper spray.

    It was not a police officer and a soldier. These were just researchers making scientific observations and notes about a strange specimen.

      Silver - 2012-01-25 14:41

      .. or maybe his driving skill or maybe the lack thereof?

      Rubbish. Don't you have something intelligent to post. Mind you this is not "toiletwenru" where you sent any stupid junk.

      Apparently you are one of those naive good for nothing individuals who believe in the real life existance of Santa Clause.

    What's next asassinations?

      Hotkop - 2012-01-25 14:52

      I really hope so.

      Alfred Neumann - 2012-01-25 15:35

      C'mon now, let's not be paranoid. If anything like that were ever to happen it would just be another case of 'regular crime', remember?

  • E=MC2 - 2012-01-25 14:37

    "The men were not armed, but several "dangerous weapons" were found in their car." what? chicken bones?

      Squeegee - 2012-01-25 16:10

      Hey, they are bad news. You cant eat KFC and breathe deeply at the same time...

  • Alfred Neumann - 2012-01-25 14:39

    They went on a category 5 chimpout to defend their right to 'shoot the boer', 'metaphorically' ofcourse, but then soil their trousers when they're being followed by 2 unarmed men. How does it feel, Yoof Leegers? Not so much fun when it's you they're after, is it?

  • bernpm - 2012-01-25 14:44

    ...paranoia.......??

      E=MC2 - 2012-01-25 14:55

      much!

  • Hotkop - 2012-01-25 14:52

    GO STALKERS GO!!!

  • Larry - 2012-01-25 14:53

    These guys have a very high opinion of themselves. Tossers.

  • Peter - 2012-01-25 14:54

    "The men were not armed, but several "dangerous weapons" were found in their car." ummmm...just a wild guess here. A tyre iron perhaps?...maybe a pocket knife key ring?...does a car cigarette lighter count here too? maybe a spare petrol container? I somehow get the feeling he might be slightly paranoid

      Hotkop - 2012-01-25 15:14

      I think the dangerous weapon was a 2 week old KFC bucket on the backseat.

  • Ziggie - 2012-01-25 15:01

    Arsehole, might have been his personal "guards", dickhead!!

  • Josh - 2012-01-25 15:25

    F&^%*(NG Joseph Goubbels would be so proud of the ANCYL. I wish i cold just have people arrested as I felt like it. The ANCYL is the absolute epitome of all that is foul with this country. It is so easy to sit on their a#$es and make statement but what does the country have to show for all the ugliness the ANCYL has brought about? NOTHING not 1 toilet in 1 township. Not 1 more educated person, not 1 more full stomach.

      Peter - 2012-01-26 07:28

      They have produced many people holding their hands cupped to fill. Do you expect them to work!!!

    I once had a big gay following. But then I ducked into an ally and lost him :P

      Hugh - 2012-01-25 15:49

      Sinudeity, I hope you mean a big "guy" following.

  • mhlengwem - 2012-01-25 18:57

    STUPID REPORTER...What are you trying to tell us with this..."The men were not armed, but several "dangerous weapons" were found in their car".

  • Jack - 2012-01-25 21:35

    Haha what? "We feel unsafe because our members have been followed into their houses by unknown people." Invest in doors. Look behind you before walking into your house to make sure there are no strangers behind you. Do these 'unknowns' just wander out again?

  • amos.simelane - 2012-01-25 23:52

    "The men were not armed, but several "dangerous weapons" were found in their car." What rubish is this? The fact that dangerous weapons were found in their possession simply means that they were armed. When exactly do we say someone is armed, is it fork & knife, panga, screwdriver, shovel, etc, ag shame!!! when carrying anything that can cause bodily harm you are armed and having an intention.

    I go to the shop and buy a garden fork, now to get home without a cop stopping me

  • Peter - 2012-01-26 07:34
