A case of assault was opened at the SAPS Kathu police station after the EFF provin-cial interim leadership member  Shadreck Tlhaole was allegedly at-tacked at a community meeting held at Mapoteng (ward 5) in Kathu by the driver of the Gamagara municipali-ty’s mayor,  Tebogo Tshegang, on October 05, 2017.
