ANC Media Statement on destruction of Property in Malamulele

ANC Media Statement on destruction of Property in Malamulele

3 September 2013

The African National Congress in Limpopo Province has noted with serious concern and disappointment acts of wanton violence in the Malamulele area. We believe that no matter how compelling the case, how just the cause, resorting to acts of violence that results in the destruction of both public and private property in Malamulele is unjustifiable.

The ANC in the province is aware of the grievances and demands of the people of Malamulele vis-a-vis the establishment of a separate municipality. We are also aware that there is ongoing engagement between the leadership of the people of Malamulele and the national Demarcation Board.

As a peace loving organisation, the ANC calls upon the people of Malamulele and the Demarcation Board to intensify their engagement so as to bring about a speedy resolution to this matter and bring an end to violence.

We sincerely believe that the people of Malamulele and of the province as a whole cannot afford the destruction of property in a situation where we have serious backlog in terms of infrastructure.
