South Africa: #BetterTogether – DA Condemns Racist Coffin Attack, Supports Mr Mlotshwa in Court Today
The following remarks were delivered by DA Mpumalanga Chairperson, Jane Sithole MPL, today outside the Middelburg Magistrate Court to a large crowd of DA activists and supporters.
The DA came out in our numbers, in support of Victor Rethabile Mlotshwa who is the victim of an horrific racial attack.
We are also here to show support for his family during this difficult time.
There is no place in a democratic society for bigotry and racism of any form. This goes against the values and principles protected in our Constitution and against the DA's core principles of Freedom, Fairness and Opportunity for All.
The fight against bigotry and racism requires all South Africans to unite in condemning the acts of the few people who seek to divide us.
We are better together, and must continue to work towards building a South Africa that is truly prosperous, and united.
This is an ideal that the DA will work tirelessly towards, so that we honour Nelson Mandela's dream for a non-racist, non-sexist South Africa, that belongs to all who live in it.
South Africa belongs to all of us.
