Zwelinzima1 “I was not expecting the President to acknowledge that the government he leads has left the youth and the black poor majority behind and therefore is going back to the drawing board! As long he is not acknowledging what’s really behind the mass looting we going nowhere!”

@Julius_S_Malema “War declared on civilian, “No soldiers on our streets! Otherwise, we are joining. All fighters must be ready… they won’t kill us all. We need a political solution to a political problem, not soldiers.#NoToSoldiers”

 

DavidAnsara “Last night Ramaphosa said that “we are a nation committed to non-racialism and non-tribalism.” Really? His government deploys race-based policies across every facet of society, eg. PEPUDA, EE Bill, etc The ANC opened this Pandora’s Box long ago & will struggle to close it”

 

@nickhedley “This is an uprising of the poor, the forgotten, and those with little to lose. The short-term solution is (peaceful) intervention by the SANDF & SAPS. The long-term solution is to uplift these communities. If the govt keeps failing them, the rest of us must find a way #ShutdownSA “
@tomolefe “Ramaphosa tonight recognised that some of this may be “looting driven by hardship and poverty”, yet offered only a police-led militaristic response, paying lip-service only to the “task of rebuilding this country and creating a better life for its people”. It’s macabre.”
@CyrilRamaphosa, “I wish to thank communities who have taken time to engage each other to stop incidents of looting, all operational members and commanders of the SAPS and all agencies for responses to acts of violence & provocation, which has helped to avert bloodshed & limit the loss of lives.”
