The Western Cape Witzenberg municipality is investigating a senior traffic officer, Winsten Koeries Dusautoir, for allegedly posting calls on a social network for violence against farmers, The Star reported on Wednesday.
The alleged comments, in Afrikaans, were: “It looks like we must again pick up our AK-47s here in the fucking Western Cape. I am sick of farmers and the DA.“
The comments continued: “The fucking farmers know who our leaders are, and now our leaders are being targeted,” adding the DA wants to make the Western Cape a province for “Boere“.
The municipality covers Bela Vista, Ceres, Tulbagh and Wolsely.
This comes amid tension in the Ceres fruit-growing area following a series of pay strikes.
Witzenberg municipal manager David Nasson and the SA Local Government Association were investigating a complaint against the officer. He had not been charged and was still on active service.
He could not be reached for comment.
