Bus ferrying BPSA members pelted with stones allegedly by ANC supporters

MOUTSE – A bus ferrying members of Bolsheviks Party of South Africa (BPSA) was alleged to have been attacked and pelted with stones allegedly by African National Congress (ANC) supporters on Moutse Mall-Loskop road in Elansdoorn outside Groblersdal on Freedom Day.

According to BPSA their members were attacked and the bus they were travelling in pelted with stones on their way home from its manifesto launch which was earlier held in Phucukani village, ward 6 in Moutse.

Seun Mogotji, BPSA Secretary, said it was fortunate that none of the party’s members who were on board the bus were injured during the attack.

Mogotji said the incident took place when they came across members of the ANC who had gathered alongside the R573 road they used as they travelled back home from the manifesto launch in Phucukani.

“There was a gathering of ANC members who started pelting stones at the bus as it passed that point. We did not stop to avoid further altercations and proceeded to the local police station where we reported the matter,” said Mogotji.

He further said it was amazing to the party that ANC in the province was taking the matter lightly, with their Limpopo spokesperson defending the culprits, going as far as denying the involvement of their members.

Mogotji concluded what happened that day was a barbaric act which clearly displayed poverty of politics, lack of ethics, political intolerance and plain stupidity.

However, Tshepo Matenche, ANC Sekhukhune Region Spokesperson, said for now, on the basis of the information received from members and leaders in the Moutse cluster electioneering programme, they could conclude nothing of the sort happened.

Matenche said as the matter was currently in the hands of the South African Police Service (Saps) they were appealing to the law enforcement agencies to make speedy and intense investigations to bring the matter to finality.

“We are making a clarion call to our members and other parties to have political tolerance and abide by the regulations of the Independent Electoral Commission (IEC) regulation to ensure the upcoming elections are free and fair. A this stage we still dismiss the utterances made against our members on this matter,” concluded Matenche.
