Mzansi reacts to the video of thousands of EFF members marching through Phoenix in protest
"I hate the fact that businesses are drowning due to Covid restrictions, but some people can break the regulations without consequence. This March is illegal under level 3, but hey, who are we?"
"I’m an ANC supporter I’ve voted for them time after time. I’ve never considered switching my vote until the racial attacks in Phoenix. When is the ruling party marching to Phoenix, why do the lives lost mean so little if anything to the ANC."
"Crystal clear that Phoenix issue is being politicised while some families are still mourning those who lost their lives due to looting and vandalising infrastructure, hooliganism."
"How can EFF have such contempt for the elderly and vulnerable? This super-spreader event will have devastating long-term consequences for the families of the participants. All for political grandstanding. It's irresponsible, disrespectful and un-African."
