The DA in the North West has called for an independent investigation into the deaths of two protesters in Brits.

“Violence can never be condoned at a protest action, by either side,” North West Democratic Alliance leader Chris Hattingh said in a statement on Monday.

Two protesters were shot dead and two were wounded during a service delivery protest, said Colonel Sabata Mokgobone.

Police were called to monitor protesters after they barricaded a road with burning tyres.

Hattingh said the party was shocked and outraged at the incident.

Residents of Letlhabile have been without water for a week.

Details of the shooting were not clear, Mokgobone said.
