STATEMENT BY SIZWE MCHUNU, MPP
LEADER OF THE DEMOCRATIC ALLIANCE IN KWAZULU-NATAL
The DA condemns the recent political violence in uMlazi’s T-section in the strongest possible terms.
As a province we cannot afford to be dragged back to the dark days of political hostility that marked the mid 1980’s. The DA urges residents of this community to exercise calm and tolerance. KwaZulu-Natal is unique in its cultural and political diversity. It is essential that individuals remain respectful of these differences and allow others their own political space.
The DA also calls on the SAPS and other law enforcement agencies to ensure that law and order prevails in uMlazi and ultimately in KwaZulu-Natal.
