Nothing wrong with “pro-black” Tumi Morake
It only makes sense that comedians do comedy while politicians should focus solely on politics.
The Pan Africanist Congress of Azania guarantees its support for a popular and gifted comedian, Tumi Morake. Comedians should be given space to exercise their creative work in a friendly and apolitical atmosphere.
They should do that with caution of not causing violence or any misconduct in society. We find nothing unbecoming about Morake’s statement [that she is pro-black].
The attack and insults thrown at her are generally being directed at Africans and that cannot be allowed to prevail.
There was no need for Morake to be insulted in this fashion because we believe in the chambers such as Broadcasting Complaints Commission of SA where the matter can be lodged and settled.
The Jacaranda FM management have a responsibility to defend their employee and ensure proper procedures to lay a complaint are followed. Trade union Solidarity should not be opportunistic, they must allow Jacaranda to deal with this issue.
To our understanding, it is an internal matter and should be handled as such without any interference. Kenneth Mokgatlhe
