A man who tried to smash the glass doors of the ANC’s Johannesburg headquarters, Luthuli House, was angry because he did not have a job, a party official said.

“He was looking for a job but did not have a matric,” ANC spokesperson Keith Khoza said today.

“He said he came to (Luthuli House) because the ANC was in government.”

Khoza said the man hit the Luthuli House glass doors with a piece of wood yesterday. The man was not an ANC member.

Gauteng police spokesperson Lieutenant-Colonel Lungelo Dlamini said Luthuli House security guards caught the man and then handed him over to the police.

He said he could not confirm that the man was upset with the ANC because he did not have a job.

“The motive will be heard when he appears in court,” he said.

The man was expected to appear in the Johannesburg Magistrates’ Court today.
