A 13-year-old Ga-Seleka boy is receiving treatment at Mokopane Hospital after police shot at protesters professedly utilising a live ammunition in a trouble-torn Limpopo village.

Community Spokesperson Jan Moselane claimed police shot Tsefa Marakalala with live ammunition while in a group of protesters who had gathered near Seleka Clinic.

“The boy was admitted to Witpoort Hospital with serious injuries and later transferred to Mokopane Hospital on the grounds that the specialist couldn’t remove a bullet lodged in his body,” said Moselane.

In a statement on Tuesday, Moselane said the community opened a case against the police.

Police Spokesperson Colonel Moatshe Ngoepe confirmed the incident.

“We are investigating these allegations together with the Independent Police Investigative Directorate (IPID),” said Ngoepe.

Moselane said the police shot the boy on June 30 for doing nothing, saying members of the community opened more cases after the police randomly shooting and injuring them with rubber bullets.
