    Tell me, by that standard how do Chris Hani or Nelson Mandela measure up? Against violence of any form?

    To the contrary, even when the path to democracy was pretty well set, NM refused to foreswear political violence as the only pre-condition for his release.

    A very controversial figure of our times i.e Mangosuthu Buthelezi, I hope he rests in peace.

    poor cartoon, get informed and go read the People’s War by Dr Anthea Jeffrey and you will get a sense of how 20,500 people were murdered not by the so called “third force”, which btw not even the TRC could obtain evidence for, or the IFP, but because of the people’s war that the ANC unleashed.

  • Peter Holmes says:

    This cartoon is in the same category as Mondli Makhanya’s distasteful rant on the death of Mangosuthu Buthelezi in (I think originally, City Press). If you want to read an excellent piece written by an outside observer, try to get hold of the late Chief’s obituary in the UK’s Daily Telegraph.

    Lazy and terrible cartoon

  • I remember the ANC ,IFP conflict around the early nineties. The IFP members everyday would be supplied with petrol and guns. When we saw the soldier brown hippos we knew that that day we have to sleep in the bushes because the IFP was going to burn the village that night. We would take important things and go and hide in the forest and the screams and wails of the people were heard throughout the night as the village burned, people burned and got shot. The IFP members used to come to homes looking for the Young ANC activists if they didn’t find the people they wanted they would look the parents in the house and set it alight burning them to death. So many old people died for nothing, children were shot and killed and our family members were exiled and fled because death and mayhem was everywhere. IFP is doing good in most rural communities and we see the changes but we can never forget all the blood that was split and the scars that mark our lives eternily.

    The real politicians with heart and with the people in mind is dying, the lot that is left behind has lost the plot

  • Nicki Brits says:

    This cartoon is distasteful and one sided. I expected more from Daily Maverick.
