Shock! Horror! The Young Thug wing of the ANC forcibly prevented a suburban book launch of which they did not approve.
The Sandton launch for Pieter-Louis Myburgh’s expose of ANC secretary-general Ace Magashule’s dirty dealings during his tenure as Free State premier had to be abandoned in the face of book-ripping, customer-jostling crowd of threatening ANC Youth League supporters. The police stood by, either inept or complicit. Why is anyone surprised? This is a political environment where xenophobic attacks go unpunished, where a veiled call for genocide gets the blessing of the Human Rights Commission.
This is where political opponents are defamed, abused and threatened, while the IEC sits with folded hands.
