IFP Condemns Torching of West Rand Clinic

06 November 2013    

 

 The IFP condemns the recent act of barbarism in Zenzele informal settlement in Randfontein, which saw criminals torching a clinic in the area whilst pretending to be service delivery protesters.

 

IFP Spokesperson on Health, Ms Hilda Msweli MP said, “It seems commonplace now for criminals to hijack otherwise peaceful service delivery protests. This recent act of criminality has now led to Zenzele residents losing a much needed clinic.”  

 

Msweli added, “We urge residents who have information on these criminals to report same to the police. Residents can greatly assist the police in this manner and in so doing also protect their facilities from criminals.”  

 

The IFP hopes those criminals will be found and arrested, and that the Gauteng department of Health will provide Zenzele residents a new clinic.
