Festus ‘Mochini’ Matshogo has died suffering from burn injuries. Earlier, his house in Mohlakeng was petrol bombed.
The party asked the community members to help the police find the criminals who had attacked Matshogo’s house four days after the general elections.
“Comrade Matshogo succumbed to his injuries sustained during a barbaric attack on his house by unknown assailants on the morning of 12 May 2019. As the ANC in West Rand, we condemn the barbaric attack on councillor Matshogo, and appeal to the community of Mohlakeng to help,” the regional secretary Sanele Ngweventsha stated.
According to the police, the officers found three unused petrol bombs on the scene.
The case is being investigated.
