ANC defends Zille and ignores the poor

I listened with dismay when Kgalema Motlanthe defended Cape Town mayor and DA leader Helen Zille's illegal actions which prompted police to take action.

I listened with dismay when Kgalema Motlanthe defended Cape Town mayor and DA leader Helen Zille's illegal actions which prompted police to take action.

The assertion that she must be treated with decorum suggests that the ANC protects the interests of high-profile people.

Poor people are being harassed, shot at and arrested by the police for raising legitimate concerns, and ANC leaders do not say a word in defence.

The poorest of the poor, those people who voted the ANC into power, need protection from hunger, unemployment and injustice.
