As part of the ANC’s campaign to undermine the independent social movements, Mncedisi Twalo and Mbulelo Zuba will appear in Athlone Magistrates Court on the Tuesday the 10th of March, 2009 at 10am. The charges of obstructing the IEC are false accusations made by ANC provincial chairperson Mcebisi Skwatsha and councillor Belinda Landingwe – who had no business being at the IEC registration table to begin with.
Gugulethu residents and other AEC supporters will come out in numbers to support their comrades.
While police routinely arrest activists on false charges all over South Africa, almost all cases are dropped for lack of evidence. We expect this one to be dropped as well. Please come out and support us. Help with legal fees would also be appreciated.
