In a series of my tweets last evening, I pin pointed why we, South Africans, have reached these dire straits in our democracy. Playground fighting and high school petty bickering in our Parliament is common place, reaching a pique in last night’s heated events. The riot police was called in, manhandled a few MPs and forcibly removed them from the National Assembly.
That’s what it has come down to: politicians, whose jobs as MPs is to discuss and argue matters concerning our country resort to using force when it gets too heated. All of that… In defence of one man, our president.
