The Cape ANC launches a probe into what caused chaos to erupt at an Oudtshoorn meeting last week.

CAPE TOWN - The African National Congress (ANC) in the Western Cape has launched an internal investigation after chaos erupted during a meeting in Oudtshoorn this week.

ANC provincial leaders including Provincial Chairperson Marius Fransman met at a community hall on Tuesday night to discuss ongoing problems within the local council.

But the gathering turned violent when another group stormed the hall.

A policeman was injured and a patrol van damaged during the incident.

The ANC's Phillip Dexter said, "The organisation has appointed some individuals to actually do an investigation and find out exactly what happened and who were the individuals involved. They will then give a report and from there action will be taken."
