THE African National Congress (ANC) has expressed shock at the knife attack on the party’s Western Cape provincial secretary Mcebisi Skwatsha. Skwatsha was attacked on Thursday during a meeting in Boland region. ANC national spokesperson Jessie Duarte yesterday said the party could not tolerate such behaviour.

“There is no place in the ANC for behaviour of this nature, and no place in the ANC for people who commit such acts,” said Duarte._
Skwatsha was stabbed in the neck at a meeting.

The meeting was being held following the earlier decision of the Western Cape ANC to suspend the Boland regional executive for defiance of provincial directives on municipal matters.

Yesterday, police stated that they had made two arrests over the stabbing.
Duarte welcomed the arrest of the perpetrators, and urged that those responsible be prosecuted without delay.
Skwatsha was admitted to hospital and later released.
