African National Congress Western Cape secretary Mcebisi Skwatsha was stabbed in the neck on Thursday night during a meeting held in the Boland region.
It is alleged that he was stabbed by an ANC member.
“The attacks on Skwatsha clearly were organised and those people were not invited in the meeting. They targeted Mcebisi particularly when they were disrupting the meeting,” says ANC’s Max Ozingski.
Ozingski says this is not the behaviour of ANC members or ANC supporters.
“We strongly condemn the incident and we want to applaud police for quickly reacting and arresting the suspects,” he added.
This incident happened when Skwatsha was talking to a meeting of ANC branches about the decision of dissolving the Boland executive.
He was treated for neck wounds at a Worcester hospital and he is since been discharged.
