Brett Herron has called on the City of Cape Town to work with police in identifying the perpetrator of the desecration of the Archbishop Tutu mural in CPT.
On Sunday, 26 September 2021, the Cape Town mayoral candidate of the GOOD party, Brett Herron issued a statement on the matter of the desecration of the Archbishop Desmond Tutu mural in Cape Town. In his statement, Herron asked for whoever committed the offence to be identified and prosecuted.
Herron called the act racist, stressing that there is no place for racism anywhere in the world and specifically not in a post-apartheid South Africa. He further alleged that the mural was inscribed with the words, “Ek is ‘n k…”, and warned that the person responsible for writing on the mural would have been captured by the city’s security cameras.
The mayoral candidate also called on the city to work together with the police to track the perpetrator down, and for the criminal justice system to do its work to send a clear message on the consequences of racial acts.
