FOR IMMEDIATE RELEASE
The African National Congress (ANC) in the Eastern Cape has received the shocking news of the brutal murder of the ANC Councillor at Mbhashe Local Municipality in the Amathole Region, Comrade Mzikayise Saki.
Councillor Mzikayise Saki , ANC Ward 2 Councillor from Ngxakaxa Administrative Area at Dutywa was attacked and strangled to death by two assailants whilst walking home last night (Saturday 01 July 2023 )and his partner gang raped.
The brutal murder of Councillor Saki represents barbarism of the worst order. We strongly condemn this senseless murder and we are saddened by the loss of yet another foot soldier in the battle to bring adequate services closer to our communities. Perpetrators of crime , gender based violence against woman, children and the elderly should have no place in society. We call on Department of Social Development to provide psycho-social support to the rape victim.
We commend the police for the swift reaction and teamwork that resulted in the speedy arrest of the two suspects this morning.
We call on our communities to form
organs of people’s power such as street committees and community policing forums and partner with law enforcement agencies in the fight against crime.
