Midvaal mayor Bongani Baloyi has filed a case of intimidation against FF+

A case of intimidation has been filed by the Executive Mayor of Midvaal, Bongani Baloyi, at the Meyerton Police Station.

According to the Democratic Alliance, a community meeting for Ward 13 in the NG Kerk Oos, Riversdal where mayor Baloyi was to address the community regarding progress in Midvaal achieved so far, and share the vision for Midvaal for the next five years was violently interrupted by members of Freedom Front Plus.

DA Gauteng Provincial Leader, John Moodey said, “These FF+ members came to intimidate mayor Baloyi and fellow DA members from delivering our message to the community. The DA condemns these desperate antics by the FF+ as symptomatic of the proverbial ‘dying horse’.

“We will write to the Independent Electoral Commission (IEC) to investigate this political intolerance to prevent another incident like this in Midvaal.”

“I will not allow anyone to intimidate and threaten me because of my political association, views on AA and BBBEE and most importantly because of the colour of my skin,” Baloyi said.
