DA calls on sjambok attacker to turn himself in to police

10 November 2014

Reports of the violent sjambok attack of Phillipi resident, Muhammed Makungwa, by an unidentified man are upsetting.

Makungwa, a gardener, was allegedly severely beaten with a sjambok by an unidentified motorist while on his way to work. He suffered head wounds and bruises to his body as a result (see Cape Times report).

The DA calls on the South African Police Services (SAPS) to find the perpetrator and bring him to book.  

We further call on the man who brutally attacked Muhammed Makungwa to turn himself in at the nearest police station.

There is no space for such brutality in a democratic South Africa. 

The DA will continue to fight to build a South Africa where everyone who lives in it is safe. 

Statement issued by Phumzile Van Damme, DA National Spokesperson, November 10 2014
