The African National Congress in the Nkangala region condemns in the strongest terms the hijacking and kidnapping (Wed, 22 Mar) of one of its ANC REC members and mayor of Dr JS Moroka local municipality, comrade Gijimani Skhosana.
The incident took place at about 21h00 at Siyabuswa D.
The executive mayor had just arrived at home when four men emerged and pointed guns at him.

It is alleged that the hijackers pointed guns at him and forced him into his own car and drove off.
The hijackers then drove around with him before dropping him off near Kwaggafontein D and in the process sustained head injuries and his hijacked vehicle was recovered.
The ANC calls on the people of Siyabuswa and surrounding areas to assist the police investigation by coming up with any information that may lead to the arrest of the perpetrators.
We appeal to members of the public who may have information on the incident to report the matter to police.
