Probe Brits protest deaths, says DA
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.
