ConCourt Zuma Corruption

The most powerful picture has emerged from the #ZumaMustFall marches… two South Africans from opposition parties, helping each other.

 

The protests and marches that took over South Africa on Friday 7th April might have been dubbed #ZumaMustFall but they stood for something much greater…

Power in unity and hope for a better tomorrow for all South Africans.

During the protests, an angry group beat a young man with sticks and branches, pelted him with stones and half-bricks and kicked him in the face and head.

The man was wearing a DA flag wrapped around his neck, and came within a block of Luthuli House, at a spot where a group of ANC supporters had gathered.

Noticing him, the angry group started to chase him and threw stones at him. Members of the Umkhonto weSizwe Military Veterans’ Association (MKMCA) attempted to stop the mob from chasing the man down, but couldn’t control the group of about 20 people who were after him.

Eventually the group caught up with him and proceeded to beat him with sticks and branches, pelted him with stones and half-bricks and kicked him in the face and head.

Luckily some MKMVA members intervened; an older Indian man wearing an ANC T-shirt managed to bring calm. The police also arrived with pepper spray and managed to get to the injured man.

There have been many conversations around division, racism and differences in South Africa but pictures like this, even in the most tragic situations speak volumes.

People from different races, with different political party followings helping each other because we have one incredible thing in common… we are all South African.

Power in Unity #ZumaMustFall
