Six community members in Sebokeng have been shot by police this morning 
after the community blocked the main road and the highway between 
Sebokeng and Joburg. They were protesting about the lack of service 
delivery. 

 

The police came in large numbers. They attacked the community, shooting 
randomly. Six people are seriously injured with gunshot wounds.
 
The Cape Town Anti-War Coalition was alarmed to receive frantic phone 
calls from this community. We condemn the action of the police and 
support the community wholeheartedly.
