EFF’s vi­o­lent be­hav­iour must be con­demned

Sunday World - - Viewpoint - Mac­don­ald Mageza

I con­demn the EFF’s un­jus­ti­fi­able at­tack on peo­ple who choose to ap­pear be­fore the Zondo In­quiry into state cap­ture as well as the party’s at­tack on me­dia group Tiso Black­star for host­ing the hear­ings.

If the EFF has any ev­i­dence about cor­rup­tion, they are free to take their place at the com­mis­sion, rather than to picket out­side the venue.

The Tiso Black­star Group has hosted many events and con­fer­ences in its build­ing, thus at­tack­ing the me­dia group is un­fair.

The de­ci­sion of the com­mis­sion to host the in­quiry in this se­cured build­ing was tested when EFF mem­bers tried to force­fully gain en­try into the premises.

The EFF can­not jus­tify the vi­o­lent be­hav­iour of its mem­bers.

Other than those at­tend­ing the in­quiry, the safety of Tiso Black­star work­ers has to be guar­an­teed as well.
