Politicalinfightingamong African National Congress (ANC) factions has been blamed for the violent death of a (South African National Civic Organisation) Sanco leader in Madibeng near Brits in North West.
ANC sub-regional convenor Lawrence Maluleka says Thabo Moroa was shot and killed at his home in Maboloka village.
“The guy was shot around two o’clock in the morning of Saturday and he was shot with three bullets, two on the legs and one in the heart and his friend was short at the back. So all in all there were four suspects, so the feeling in our family is very sad,” says family spokesperson Aaron Moroa.
Maluleka says some ANC members in the area fear for their lives.
“All the meetings of the AGMs and the community meetings people are coming there with guns and the pangas and now we have requested the leadership to issue a statement and till today nothing has happened. That is why these people are continuing doing these things.”
