A councilor of the opposition chamber of the Mahuduthama municipality in Jane Furs, Limpopo, is suing the municipality for 30 million rupees after he was allegedly attacked by Speaker Judy Mfelan.
Allegedly, the only representative of the National Communist Congress, Mosako Maapea, was handcuffed to a pole. The incident allegedly took place during a council meeting where Maapea was accused of failure.
Last week, photos of Maapea handcuffed to a pole were widely circulated on social media. He was allegedly handcuffed for several hours. He allegedly disagreed with some of the proposals made at the meeting of the Council. Disagreements allegedly led to a chaotic situation, after which Maapea was handcuffed.
Maapea’s legal representative, Mfafolan Koma’s lawyer, says an attack has also been launched against the speaker.
Como’s lawyer says: “As a result of this illegal act on Friday at the Jane Furs police station, a case of assault was launched. We have not yet been told whether the suspect has been arrested or not, but a case has been opened at the Jane Furs police station. “
Como’s lawyer also added that his client receives death threats from anonymous subscribers.
He says the calls were made after they filed a lawsuit against the municipality. We contacted the city authorities, who declined to comment on the matter.
