Former ANC leaders in the OR Tambo region, allegedly arrested after allegations of a plot to kill another party leader, yesterday claimed they were tortured by police.

Thandekile Sabisa, former OR Tambo chairman, and Lawrence Mambila, former deputy secretary, were arrested on Monday at OR Tambo district municipality’s Myezo Park offices in relation to the death of Zukile Nyontso, a bodyguard for current chairman Xolile Nkompela.

Monday’s arrests follows the arrest of a councillor in the Mhlontlo municipality last week.

Hawks national spokesman Brigadier Hangwani Mulaudzi says in a statement, the two had been charged with conspiracy to murder both Nkompela and Nyontso.

The two prominent politicians have strongly denied the charge and told treporters they had been tortured while in police custody on Monday night.
