THE same Pat Ngomane who, on International Rangers Day at Kruger National Park, pleaded with everyone to work together and made no bones about even politicians being involved in poaching, seems to have created a racial rant by lying to police.
According to www.mobserver.co.za, Ngomane was quoted as saying in a press release that the attackers of the young black man who died in a road rage incident at the beginning of July, “were allegedly (white) farmers.” It is totally the opposite of what eyewitnesses of all colour claimed in an interview with mobserver.
When protestors latched onto this, placard carriers quoted the late Peter Mokaba who said that “we will drive the poor whites into the sea.” He made this remark in the 90’s when he said the rich will flee from South Africa and the ANC will then drive the leftovers into the sea.
Despite the court roll not showing that, Ngomane told protestors, “the case is back onto the roll and I will personally monitor it.” No one has been arrested for the incident and Middelburg Police have a tough one on their hands.
ANC supporters marched to the Middelburg Magistrate’s Court to hand over a memorandum of demands to the Mpumalanga MEC for Community Safety, Security, and Liaison and the Middelburg Magistrate’s Court officials. Speedy Mashilo, Nkangala Regional Chairman has taken hands with Ngomane in what now seems to be a personal racial agenda in Mpumalanga.
