The Democratic Alliance has condemned a physical attack by a journalist on a local councillor in Stellenbosch outside Cape Town. The party alleges that after an urgent council meeting in the town hall yesterday, journalist Johan Pienaar from Stellenbosch Nuus assaulted DA councillor, Patricia Crawley, in front of other councillors after she politely refused to comment on question he had posed to her. The publication’s editor says he will comment after seeing the video of the incident.
