Empty bullet cartridges found in ANC offices

2016-09-30 06:00

EVEN though local government elections are long gone, tension between members of the ruling party in Harry Gwala Region are still running high.
On Monday staff at ANC regional offices in Ixopo arrived to find five empty bullet cartridges in the reception area.

“The cartridges were all over and now people are afraid to work there,” said a source that wanted to be unnamed.

The regional offices are home to the ANCYL, Women’s League and parliamentary offices.
Regional ANC secretary Sindi Msomi said there were signs that a shooting took place over the weekend, but staff were not there.

“People were surprised to see the cartridges on Monday morning and there were bullet holes in the windows.”

ANCYL regional spokesperson Sbusiso Phuzi said it is worrying to see signs of a shooting in the offices.

“The youth league wants the mother body [ANC] to give clarity on what the shooting was about because someone inside the party knows.
“People working there are not safe and their lives are in danger.
“This shooting shows that there is no peace among ANC members.”

Fever has learnt that there are no security guards at the office building, and some regional leaders have hired private security guards.

A SAPS KZN Media Centre spokesperson replied­ in an email that no case had been opened with regard to the incident.
