DA calls for intervention in KZN amid Zuma protests

Published on

The DA in KZN has called for the premier of the province, and all other KZN leadership, to intervene and condemn the current protests and enforce law enforcement.

On Friday, 9 July 2021, the Democratic Alliance (DA) KwaZulu-Natal (KZN) leader, Francois Rodgers released a statement on behalf of the DA leadership in the province, in light of the Jacob Zuma protests currently taking place in parts of the province. The DA KZN has conveyed that it strongly condemns the wave of reportedly African National Congress (ANC) protest action currently taking place across the province, as a result of former president, Jacob Zuma’s incarceration.

Rodgers stated that ANC factions cannot be undermining the rule of law and infringing on the rights of law-abiding KZN citizens. Rodgers also stated that the DA believes the ruling party has created a monster, which he has warned that if not controlled, would negatively affect the economy and lead to job losses.

Rodgers further noted that some of the KZN leadership have publicly displayed their support of Zuma, naming KZN Premier, Sihle Zikalala as one. The DA posed the question as to whether the KZN government would have the political will to deal with the protests, and further stated that it was time to put the province ahead of ANC factions. The DA called on Premier Zikalala and the KZN leadership to condemn the pro-Zuma protests.
