Cape Town – The African National Congress (ANC) in the Western Cape on Monday said it was demanding the immediate arrest of a farmer who allegedly shot and injured three people during a protest in the Little Karoo town of Uniondale.
“This is what happens when our people exercise their right to protest. We demand that the farmer be charged without any delay. We also urge the Human Rights Commission to investigate this matter because we can’t have a small town cover-up. We also demand that George Mayor Mike Naik get off his high horse and go to Uniondale to listen to the concerns of residents,” said ANC Western Cape secretary Faiez Jacobs in a statement.
