A man who tried to smash the glass doors of the ANC’s Johannesburg headquarters, was angry because he did not have a job, a party official said on Friday.

“He was looking for a job, but did not have a matric,” ANC spokesman Keith Khoza said.

“He said he came to Luthuli House because the ANC was in government.”

Khoza said the man hit the Luthuli House doors with a piece of wood on Thursday. The man was not an ANC member.

Gauteng police spokesman Lieutenant-Colonel Lungelo Dlamini said Luthuli House security guards caught the man and then handed him over to the police.

He could not confirm whether the man was upset with the ANC because he did not have a job.

“The motive will be heard when he appears in court,” he said.

The man was expected to appear in the Johannesburg Magistrate’s Court yesterday. – Sapa
