NO REST FOR BRUTAL Buthelezi
Follow us on I would like to thank Mondli Makhanya for the sober and accurate view on Gatsha last week. I almost threw up in my mouth when I heard politicians, who know better, fall all over themselves to praise someone who should actually be in jail. I really don’t know what hectic trip our politicians are on because even magic mushrooms don’t make one so delusional.

Mondli Makhanya, you are very one-sided! Didn’t the members of Inkatha Freedom Party die in their thousands at the hands of your “innocent darlings”? Come on Mondli, be fair! Don’t be partial. I read your article “No rest for brutal Buthelezi” with great disgust and find it gross. I am a Chinese South African who migrated to this country in 1993 at the age of 25. I spent 24 years of my life in Facebook: facebook.com/citypress.co.za

It is not for me to argue with you about the accusations you laid against Prince Buthelezi, but why at this moment and to him particularly?
Many other evil deeds took place during apartheid. Many of them had been dealt with by the TRC. There are many more pressing issues concerning the future of this country, yet you are directing the focus to a statesman who is stepping down from his political platform?
History will judge the politicians. One would wonder what kind of vendetta would drive a crownless king to witch-hunt a retiring prince.

Yes, those terrible days in Richmond. There was another Buthelezi henchman named Themba Khoza.
The IFP was used by the De Klerk apartheid regime to sow discord in the KwaZulu-Natal and PWV (Pretoria, Witwatersrand and Vaal) areas. They were armed by then SADF to go and murder other black people on trains.

I don’t want to even think about those days. People were brutally killed in trains everywhere on the East Rand.

I’m still mourning my uncle, who was shot and killed during the time when his party’s killers went on a rampage.
