I remember something like that, if true then they were planning on bullets flying... and that means they cannot be completely innocent.The Marikana mob had paid a witchdoctor R500 a pop for bullet proof muti but it must have passed its "best before" date when they needed it.
For how long? it looks like more than 7 years ago, it might have caused a storm at the time but everyone seems to have forgotten about it by now.Maybe not in your circles but it was news elsewhere
"Black twitter" and EFF do commemorate him, together with media articles on social media.For how long? it looks like more than 7 years ago, it might have caused a storm at the time but everyone seems to have forgotten about it by now.
Admitedly though I never bothered I think to pay much attention to this kind of news at the time.
Tbh, from your link:"Black twitter" and EFF do commemorate him, together with media articles on social media.
While Tatane's death as a result of police action during a protest is by no means a unique event in South Africa, it had notably garnered greater nationwide attention than any previous such occurrence. One of the main reasons for this was the fact that the entire incident was filmed on T.V. cameras and later broadcast during the prime time evening news of the national broadcaster, the SABC.
He crazy?Read most of this, only conclusion I can make is that there is definitely more to this story, much more. Very little in all of this makes sense. Why did he attack when he knew the woman called the cops? Why did he hang around. And their police training is really not that good.
Firstly, in SA today that is political to start with.It had nothing to do with politics. He wasn't marching under a political banner, and so were the police.He was marching for service delivery, which municipalities are mandated to provide to the residents.
EFF wasn't even a political party when he died. Random people commemorated his death yearly until formation of EFF, who used him as a campaign tool. Marikana on the other hand was political.Firstly, in SA today that is political to start with.
Secondly, just as the race grifters in murica are doing with the ball player, the eff made it as political as possible.
Normal police involved shootings do not create martyrs. And if he was not at a riot, no one would be putting him in the news like this.
Which is why I said it already was political. You do not get an a-political "service protest" in this country. And before the EFF malema did the same things as leader of the youth league.EFF wasn't even a political party when he died. Random people commemorated his death yearly until formation of EFF, who used him as a campaign tool. Marikana on the other hand was political.
