The Alfred Duma Local Municipality official who was badly assaulted by protesters during the strike on May 9 is back at work.
Having been off for three months, the official went back to work a month ago.
The official sustained a sprained leg, as well as neck and back injuries.
This after municipal workers gathered in various main streets in the CBD area, singing and dancing and demanding that their grievances be heard.
It is believed that the official was removing municipal vehicles that were barricading the roads when the mob saw what he was doing and viciously attacked him. He was rushed to hospital after the attack.
