The attack happened on the evening of Friday, 22 March, as reported on by The Citizen.
Briefly.co.za gathered the exact location of the alleged attack was the Sebothoma Community Hall in Temba.
Mthimunye was there to be part of a debate hosted by Motsweding FM.
Last night [Friday], while attending an election town hall debate hosted by Motsweding FM, I was assaulted by a group of people wearing ANC T-shirts. I will be laying criminal charges of assault at the Temba police station today [Saturday].
The unprovoked attack occurred just after I arrived for the debate which was scheduled to start at 6pm, when the group of people in the parking area realised that I was a representative of the DA.
Mthimunye added that the alleged incident is disheartening and that political parties should be able to campaign in a safe environment.
He wants those found guilty of the assault to face the might of the law.
