Lekgoro Condemns Attacks on Councillors

Gauteng government concerned about the increasing attacks against councillors

The Department of Local Government in Gauteng is concerned that the attacks against councillors are on the rise as the country draws closer to the end of this term of office for the local government.

In a press statement, MEC Kgaogelo Lekgoro says that, "Those who want to see themselves as councillors are already punting for the removal of councillors."

Lekgoro says that threats of violence against officials and service delivery protests are being organised by community members who were seeking political advancement.
