ANC Shocked and Saddened by Parliament Incident

14 September 2018

The African National Congress in Parliament is shocked and saddened by the incident that occurred on the parliamentary precinct today, where a parliamentary official took his own life.

The incident has left the whole of parliament, including the ANC Caucus traumatised.

This incident also raises concerns around our security systems in Parliament, in particular, how the firearm that was used got into the precinct of parliament undetected and breached our security. This matter is being investigated to ensure that it does not happen again in future.

The ANC sends its heartfelt condolences to the family, friends and colleagues of the deceased official. May his soul rest in peace.

Issued by the Office of the ANC Chief Whip, comrade Jackson Mthembu.
