Agang members due in Limpopo court

Three members of political party Agang SA are to appear in the Mahwelereng Magistrate’s Court on charges of malicious damage to property, Limpopo police said on Thursday.

The three were arrested in Mokopane in July after violence erupted during a community meeting, Captain Sebotsaro Motadi said.

Mogalakwena mayor Tlhalefi Mashamaite failed to arrive as promised to address Mzombane residents on service delivery problems, Motadi said.

A councillor then took the microphone.

“As he was trying to address them, a group disrupted the meeting. The three suspects stoned the councillor’s car… They later identified themselves as Agang SA members,” Motadi said.

The three men would appear in court on Friday.
