Cape Town – The spokesperson of the ANC Youth League in the Western Cape, Siyabulela Tom, is expected to appear in the Cape Town Magistrate's Court on Thursday for allegedly intimidating a metro police officer. 

Provincial ANCYL chairperson Muhammad Khalid Sayed said Tom allegedly intimidated the officer who apparently called him a "baboon". He said the incident happened in Sea Point.

A separate complaint has been laid against the police officer, Sayed said. 

In a statement on Wednesday, Sayed called on ANCYL supporters to attend the court hearing.

He said Tom had to be supported "in his fight against racist law enforcement authorities of the City of Cape Town".
