The Democratic Alliance (DA) notes the incident which took place in Ka-thu on Friday night 13 October 2017, where two young men from Kommagas were attacked by a man in a Nissan bakkie.
This is according to the DA's Member of the Provincial Legislature and Provincial Chairperson in the Northern Cape, Harold McGluwa.
While the exact circumstances of the
case are still unclear, it appears as though the attack was unprovoked and racially mo-tivated.
Mr McGluwa said that the Democratic Al-liance cannot condone racism or any racist actions of any kind. It is absolutely unac-ceptable that any person becomes a target because of the colour of his or her skin.
“We express our condolences to the fa-mily and loved ones of the young man who has passed away. We also send our well wishes for a full and speedy recovery to the second man, who has suffered serious in-juries. We will be visiting the families to show our sympathy and support.
Mr McGluwa also commended the SAPS for their quick attention to the matter, for their recovery of the vehicle used in the as-sault and the apprehension of the one sus-pect.
