Media assault case postponed for trial
Johannesburg - The case against an ANC Youth League member, who allegedly hit a journalist on the head with a brick, was postponed for trial by the Polokwane Magistrate's Court on Wednesday.
Clifford Mohloana, 30, would go on trial on February 14, said Limpopo police spokesperson Lieutenant Colonel Mohale Ramatseba.
Mohloana allegedly hit Limpopo-based freelance journalist Chester Makana with a brick.
Makana had been investigating allegations that duplicate voting tags were being printed at a photocopying shop, shortly before delegates at the provincial elective conference picked their top five leaders.
Makana alleged that two men stormed out of the shop, grabbed his camera and destroyed his memory card, then chased him. He went to a police station to open a case against his attackers.
Mohloana handed himself over to the police on December 18 after learning that they were looking for him.
