UDM shock at shooting of its members media statement issued by United Democratic Movement National Spokesperson (2 February 2008)

We were appalled to learn of the shooting of two United Democratic Movement members in Deneysville. Both have been hospitalised.

It seems as if this violence could be associated with the court process underway regarding the killing last year of Mr N Mokoena, a councillor of the African National Congress. We are still waiting for the police's report regarding this investigation.

The UDM calls upon the police to speedily investigate both these incidents before this situation deteriorates any further.

We also call on the people of the area to remain calm and not take the law into their own hands.
