In response to ‘weapons’ letter

2015-11-19 06:00

THE letter by Vigilant on 5 November­, “Struggle brought in illegal weapons” refers.

South Africans should be grateful when their freedom was negotiated, unlike other countries whose freedom was achieved through civil war.

It is sad that illegal weapons are a problem in our new South Africa when they are now used by criminals.

The apartheid government has to be blamed as well not only the struggle of ANC whose intention was to free black people from oppression.

There was no way the ANC could have a control over these arms, black people were treated bad and turned to zero.
