SAFTU CONDEMNS BURNING OF TRUCKS IN KWAZULU NATAL
The South African Federations of Trade Unions (SAFTU) is appalled by the senseless
burning of trucks in Kwa Zulu Natal in response to the imprisonment of former
president, Jacob Zuma.
Former president Zuma’s posture not to utilise the opportunities presented to him to
challenge the court process at the onset ― either because of a contemptuous attitude
to the courts predicated on delusions of grandeur or bad legal advice ― and his
ultimate contempt of court order, have landed him a jail term of 15 months.
His supporters, therefore, are trying to defend the indefensible. Their senseless acts
of violence and arson are consequently unjustifiable.
The tenderpreneurs who might possibly be behind these acts of arson, will be nowhere
when drivers whose buses are burned lose their jobs.
SAFTU condemns those acts of arson on the trucks and any other vehicle in Kwa Zulu
