What is needed in KZN now after the King’s speech is for traditional leadership to get the Impi involved and “police” the subjects and make sure the message gets across. .

I am sorry I dont trust this anc lot!!!

That Value warehouse has been looted now for 2 or 3 days NON STOP!!! No cops no SANDF!!! FOR # DAYS!!!!!!

WHY???

2500 SANDF members deployed!! Where??? Why not more? Now they say 5000 but they cant say where they are??? WHY???

COME ON MAN!!!

CYRIL!!! WE ARE NOT AS STUPID AS YOU THINK!!! YOU WERE THE GUY THAT COULD DEPLOY 70 000 SANDF MEMBERS IN ONE DAY WITH LOCKDOWN LEVEL 5!!!!! Now you allow looting to continue unabated. WHY???

This is a big anc con with top leadership putting the whole country at risk!!!

All these soldiers being deployed and walking around with these big guns, to quell the riots and take control of the looting thugs.
Are these big guns loaded? If they are, can they use them?
If not, what’s the point?
