The African National Congress in the Western Cape has condemned mob violence and attack against ANC councillors in Drakentein.

This comes after protesters torched the house of Councillor Sanwabo Lumko in Paarl East.

ANC Secretary Faiz Jacobs said the community has asked the ANC and its alliance partners to intervene in some of the concerns and issue raised by the community

“We are asking the community to allow us to meet with all relevant structures to facilitate dialogue and find a resolution to the community concerns. We are asking the communities in the area of Drakestein to remain calm. Lets not take law into our hands” Jacobs added.

Four suspects have been arrested for the arson and  damage to property.
