Open letter to South Africa’s students‚ universities and government‚ represented by Minister in the .
Since the Jacob Zuma debacle started our young democracy has been threatened on several occasions by hooligans in the ruling party.
Zuma supporters have denounced and threatened our constitutional court.
Our top judges have been treated with contempt by these hooligans in the name of their political messiah.
We have constantly been fed nonsense by these hypocrites, who have threatened to take up arms and to kill for Zuma.
How can our constitutionally appointed judges execute their duties when they are being threatened?
The ANC leadership seems to condone this behaviour of inciting violence and misleading people who love Zuma to commit crimes.
The Alliance of Free Democrats views this behaviour as unfortunate and a serious threat to our democracy and judiciary. We respect freedom of expression and the right to differ but what we have witnessed from ANC "leaders" is a shame.
We appeal to people not to support the agitation because we are concerned about violence in our communities.
Judging by recent events such an eventuality is likely if Zuma is convicted.
The government has failed dismally to provide services to the poor and now its Julius Malemas want to kill with your help. Do not endorse such political hooliganism.
