The African National Congress (ANC) in the Eastern Cape strongly condemns the abhorrent and vicious attack on Councillor Nanziwe Rulashe today at the Amathole District Municipality offices by security officials.
A video circulation on social media platforms shows security officials dragging her out of office in full view of Municipality staff. The most disgusting part in that video is the charge led by a woman wearing a white dress claiming to be a head of security , someone who should know how acts of gender based violence and femicide have led to killing of women in our country.
This behaviour is unacceptable, seeing a public representative being dragged out of office by security officials on the alleged instructions from a Municipal Manager and HOD can never be tolerated.
We call for decisive action against all those involved in this abhorrent display of gender based violence and be brought to book. We further call on MEC of COGTA to urgently investigate this despicable and distasteful act.
