Cops hunt for suspect after EFF member is shot in Limpopo
It’s understood a man wearing ANC regalia approached the EFF member and shot her in the leg.
JOHANNESBURG - Limpopo police are searching for a suspect who shot and wounded an Economic Freedom Fighters (EFF) member in Polokwane while she was handing out flyers.
Police say there are conflicting reports, but it's understood that a man wearing African National Congress (ANC) regalia approached the EFF member and shot her in the leg last night.
The police's Ntobeng Phala said, "As she was busy handing out those pamphlets, she was allegedly approached by a man wearing an ANC t-shirt. It is further alleged that an argument ensured between the two."
The EFF says the ANC must deal with political intolerance in the province.
Provincial Secretary Jossey Buthane has called on the red berets not to be provoked.
"As the EFF, we are calling on the ANC to strike peace and have political tolerance. They must not be irritated easily by organisations, in particular the EFF. They must allow democracy to play."
