From he­roes to zero

Sunday Times - - Opinion -

Let us re­mem­ber some of our great free­dom fight­ers of the past. Man­dela, who co-founded Umkhonto weSizwe. Chris Hani, who never lived to see his dreams come true. We can now add Thabiso Se­t­ona to this long roll of hon­our. The ANC branch sec­re­tary demon­strated his un­wa­ver­ing com­mit­ment to guer­rilla war­fare by kick­ing a mid­dle-aged mother in the back out­side Luthuli House this week. Sergeant Se­t­ona, what courage you demon­strated to take on a de­fence­less 52-year-old woman. Es­pe­cially since she was un­armed and ly­ing on the ground. Not to men­tion the mil­i­tary skills re­quired to kick her with such brute force. Please come for­ward and re­ceive your award. The cer­e­mony will be held at the bot­tom of a lake, where you’ll feel right at home with all the other pond scum.
