- JR believes the South African Police Service (SAPS) is purposefully ignoring the looting protests in KZN and Gauteng
- The musician is assured that the police are acting against President Cyril Ramaphosa in favour of the arrested Jacob Zuma
- JR posted his strong statement on social media but it was met with strong opposition views that included personal attacks
Motswako rapper JR is convinced that the South African Police Service (SAPS) is out to damage President Cyril Ramaphosa.
The musician has told the public that he believes the police have failed to adequately fight the widespread violent protests in order to sabotage the President.
JR made his short statement on Twitter on Tuesday morning as the violence continues into Gauteng and into a second week since Jacob Zuma's arrest.
Phumzile Van Damme spills the tea on whether she will form her own political party: "It won't happen my skat"
"The police don’t want to help… this is a sabotage against Cyril. What army? Where? Mxm. One big laag."
With such a strong statement on a hot sensitive topic, the social media app's masses briskly responded to JR with a mix of views.
"Yahlanya wena. Cyril sabotaged himself by allowing white people use him which led to this. Cyril did not give them salary raise but expect police to jump when he says jump. Even police are hungry. While he and his ministers sit in the comfort of their homes."
"Bro.. Your comment is the reason why people say artists must stick to art. You thinking Cyril is being sabotaged is the classic example of speaking and thinking from a place of purest comfort. This root and looting is wrong, but it isn't about J Zuma or political sabotage!"
"Police did get their increase for the past two years, so this is not surprising. They are not motivated. Besides about 20 billion SAPS budget was cut and redirected to VIP protection."
Other celebrities that have voiced their against the events include Somizi Mhlongo-Motaung and Thuli Phongolo.
In the meantime, the country is watching on to see if police will win the raging battle before the looting protests get worse that which is already unbelievable.
Somizi: "It’s barbaric, even animals don’t behave as we do right now"
Versatile Mzansi entertainer Somizi Mhlongo-Motaung is calling for something to be done as South Africa continues to suffer violent protests.
The turmoil started in KwaZulu-Natal as the masses demanded the release of Jacob Zuma from prison.
The looting of shopping malls and commercial vehicles soon spread to Gauteng before the South African National Defence Force (SANDF) was called upon after the South African Police Services (SAPS) got overwhelmed.
TV star, radio personality, and dancer Somizi has since gone onto social media to voice his disapproval of the violent events.
