DA councillor 'watched kinky porn'

2012-05-04 11:10
Cape Town - Residents of the sleepy town of Swellendam have been shocked by allegations that a local DA councillor used his office computer to view hardcore pornography.

The Daily Voice reported that a prominent DA councillor was being investigated after “explicit, hard and kinky” pornography was found on his computer.

An ANC spokesperson said the municipality’s computer was used during work hours to view the pornography.

The ANC laid a charge against the councillor, saying the DA had been trying to cover up the incident after it was reported to them.

Swellendam police confirmed that they were investigating the case.

The Cape Times reported on Friday that the Swellendam municipality has also launched an investigation.

The local MEC for Local Government, Environmental Affairs and Development Planning, Anton Bredell, confirmed that he had been informed of the allegations and said he viewed it in a very serious light.
