Sad news-another ANC member was killed

There has been one more political homicide in Mzansi. The African National Congress (ANC) is lamenting the homicide of one of its councilors, Tshepo Motaung, who was brutally killed in Mabopane municipality on Friday 24 September. 


It is accepted that the ANC part's killing was, without shock, politically spurred. The killed lawmaker's execution-style murder is connected to the party's new councilor up-and-comer choice interaction. 

Motaung was driving home with his nephew and uncle after a gathering. The contract killers showed up with two vehicles to execute the unexpected assault on Motaung's vehicle with a hail of shots. 

Every one of the three casualties escaped the vehicle yet the principal target, Motaung, was before long cornered before he was mercilessly shot dead. 


As indicated by the SA National Civic Organization's forerunner locally, David Tshesedi, the casualty was influenced by clashes around the choice measures forward 22 councilor applicants, for which he was one of the hopefuls. 

It is said that the ANC councilor had acquired triumph from local area votes and his homicide was planned by his resistance. 

"It is identified with applicant choice cycles of the ANC. I can say it is politically inspired," Tshesedi said through IOL. 

"They compromised us with weapons that if Tshepo (Motaung) wins they will remove the voting form papers. We remained silent because we were frightened. However, they never removed those voting form papers as they compromised," Tshesedi added. 

ANC local representative Bafuze Yabo responded to the misfortune. He declined to remarks on the cases that the killing was politically inspired. Yabo additionally said that he didn't accept that such Motaung's reality was in danger. 

"I don't have any subtleties regarding how his passing came to fruition. Anything that we might say will all be hypotheses. Just law authorization can make quick work of it and discover reality, Yabo said. 

"We are trusting that that happens quickly. That it occurs at the earliest opportunity, to relieve fears of companions just as to bring back business as usual to the association. 

"It doesn't seem like his life was under any type of danger. He interfaced in life as ordinary. He didn't live like somebody whose life was in danger." 

The ANC representative finished up by reminding the public that a similar area lost two of its councilors through killings in May and September 2018. 

They were Siphiwe Montlha of ward 37 in Soshanguve and ward 19 councilors, Esther Matumane of Winterveldt. 

"Today we have inquiries regarding what occurred and who was capable; nobody was caught." 

"[The ANC has] full trust in law authorization offices and we are trusting that this time around answers are given and guilty parties brought to book," Yabo closed.
