Johannesburg - North West police said on Monday that a man had been arrested for his involvement in a shooting at an ANC meeting in Taung.

Spokesperson Thulani Ngubane said the shooting occurred as two ANC factions were engaged in a dispute in the Magogong Village.

"One of the two groups held a meeting at Magogong Primary School.

"The other group had not been invited to the meeting which was aimed at...discussing the delegation to the ANC's conference in Mangaung," said Ngubane.

"There was a prior agreement between the two groups that they will jointly hold a meeting for that purpose."

It was alleged that the uninvited group was barred from entering the school premise by armed "security guards" and an argument broke out.

"One of the security guards inside the school yard drew a firearm and pointed [it at] one lady who was among the locked-out group, but no shot was fired," said Ngubane.

"A few moments later a shot was fired and that was when a man was hit in his chest."

The man was in a serious but stable condition in a Kimberley hospital.

The suspect was due to appear in the Taung Magistrate's Court on Tuesday.

He faces charges of attempted murder, pointing a firearm and the unlawful possession of a firearm.
