Death And Demagogues In South Africa

The nation of South Africa was shocked at the murder of 34 miners who were on strike against their company. Police fired into the crowd of miners and the result was the worse massacre of humans since the old days of apartheid. President Zuma rushed to the scene and made attempts to calm angry voices. He did not do a good job resulting in demagogues to enter the dialogue with voices of anger and hate.

Julium Malema, who was expelled from the African National Congress due to preaching hate against whites came to the scene of violence. He decided to play the colonial race card. Malema blamed white mine owners for the massacre. “The British are making money out of the mines.” He went on to denounce President Jacob Zuma for the deaths of innocent people.

Perhaps, it is time for decent wages or nationalization.
