The Running Commentary

Freedom of expression – but only for the ANC


Said Duarte: “We condemn this practice by faceless individuals which demonstrates high levels of hatred and political intolerance by those opposed to ANC policies and leadership.””South Africa is a constitutional democracy, which guarantees freedom of association and speech, among many rights we continue to enjoy. Any abuse of these rights cannot be allowed,” she said

So the above extract from Duarte the spokesperson for the ANC is really quite interesting. The comment comes just hours after Jacob Zuma announced intentions to “engage” with the constitutional court and review their powers. Our constitution is what guarantees freedom of expression and then equally provides protection for us.

It seems that the left hand does not know what the right hand is saying or doing, not a very co-ordinated approach?
