Outlaw marching to private homes
THE Black First Land First (BLF) movement must be taken to task.
Just last week we lost one of the progressive journalists in our country, Suna Venter.
We have learnt that her death was a result of perpetual abuse by those who should be appreciating her work.
The BLF people behave as if they just arrived in South Africa and they don’t know about freedom of the press which is enshrined in our constitution.
If these people are bored and they don’t know the reasons for their existence, they should stop abusing our journalists.
The press has an important role to play in our democracy and must not be threatened because certain people don’t like what they are reporting about.
Andile Mngxitama is educated and he knows what he is doing is wrong. Marching to someone’s home is the lowest level to which one can stoop.
Perhaps the country should consider outlawing marching on private residences, because this has the potential of putting the victims’ lives in danger.
Mngxitama and his BLF must be criminally charged. They must get a taste of their own medicine.
They must not think that they are the Van Dammes of our country and are untouchable. Braamfontein
