WE have two moe­goes this week: the po­lice of­fi­cers who opened fire on pro­test­ers in Bekkers­dal on the West Rand, and the res­i­dents who dis­rupted school­ing to force kids to take part in the protest.

The cops are said to have ganged up on lo­cals with gun-tot­ing hood­lums in ANC colours. It is re­ported that trou­ble started when ANC of­fi­cials came to cam­paign for the elec­tions.

We live in a democ­racy and the free­dom of as­so­ci­a­tion should be re­spected. The cops should re­mem­ber Marikana.
