US Con­gress­man John Lewis. The civil rights ac­tivist and Demo­cratic Party mem­ber this week led a sit-in on the House floor to protest the power of the US’s gun lobby. In the wake of the tragic shoot­ings at an Or­lando night­club this month, Lewis led the protest this week to push for more strin­gent gun con­trol reg­u­la­tions in the US. In­tel­li­gence Min­is­ter David Mahlobo. We are not ar­gu­ing for hy­per­spy­ing, but ba­sic in­tel­li­gence-gath­er­ing should have alerted gov­ern­ment to the volatile con­di­tions in Tsh­wane’s town­ships.
