The African National Congress Women’s League (ANCWL) in Bokone Bophirima is shocked by an attack on the home of ANCWL Kenneth Kaunda Regional Secretary, Kedibone Chabalala.
Chabalala’s home in Khuma township was attacked in the early hours of Wednesday morning around 2am when unknown people threw stones, breaking windows in the process. Bridgette Tlhomelang
ANCWL Bokone Bophirima Provincial Secretary, Bridgette Tlhomelang said they concerned that in addition to the damage that these attackers have caused, they also left Chabalala’s children traumatised. “While the police were called to the scene, no arrest has been made so far. As the ANC Women’s League, we view this attack as an act of intimidation related to the Regional Conference taking place this coming weekend. We condemn this attack and call on the law enforcement agencies to make sure that the perpetrators are brought to book. It’s a shame that women are constantly disrespected and threatened in many forms to discourage them from playing a role in our country’s politics,” said Tlhomelang.
