Statement on mass killings in Cape Town

30 September 2017

The African National Congress condemns in the harshest possible terms the killing of more than 10 people in overnight violence in Marikana informal settlement in Phillipi East near Nyanga, Cape Town. While the details around these deaths are still not quite clear, regardless of the circumstances these mass murders - related or not - are criminal acts which must be punished using the full might of our law.

The ANC calls on the community of Marikana, Phillipi, Nyanga and anyone else to come forward with any information they may have to assist the SAPS apprehend the perpetrators of these heinous crimes. Criminals live amongst our communities, they are harbored by us and until society stands as one against this scourge it will not be defeated.
