ANC to investigate Boy Mamabolo's conduct after threats against journalist
The ANC has condemned threats Mamabolo made to a journalist and says it will investigate his conduct.
In a telephone recording published by Sunday World, Mamabolo is heard swearing at journalist Ngwako Malatji and threatening to shoot him.
Malatji has opened a criminal case of intimidation against the politician after he was verbally assaulted.
In a statement released on Friday, the ANC said Mamabolo's conduct was unacceptable and inconsistent with the values of the organisation.
"In a democracy such as ours, there is no place for the intimidation of journalists", the governing party said.
The South African National Editors’ Forum (SANEF) has also condemned the ANC MP’s violent threats.
Mamabolo is no stranger to controversy. Earlier this year, the politician was threatened with a R1 million defamation lawsuit after he accused Julius Malema of abusing his wife.
