The matter was reported to the Durban North SAPS and a case was opened.  Councillor Pullan has also reported the matter to the Speaker’s office and requested that the ward committee be dissolved.

 

“This kind of thuggish behaviour has no place in a democratic society,” said Graham, adding that the matter required urgent attention by both the city and the SAPS..
