NO REST FOR BRU­TAL Buthelezi

CityPress - - Voices - Thami Tsha­bal­ala via email Alex Liu via email

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.

Twit­ter: @Ci­ty_Press or like us on In­deed evil legacy of Buthelezi. Why has he never ap­peared be­fore the TRC?

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

There­fore it does not stop me from writ­ing this let­ter to you in English to tell you that we are filled with dis­gust at your hate­ful ar­ti­cle.

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.
