The crowds outside: Smaller than expected

2008-08-04 00:00

Threats by Jacob Zuma supporters that they would arrive in such large numbers that they would bring the city to a standstill did not materialise yesterday, and for the most part, it was business as usual as shops and offices in and around the high court continued to operate.

The police reported no serious incidents. Senior Suprintendent Henry Budhram said all went well from their side. “We were pleased with the behaviour of the crowd and the manner in which they conducted themselves. There was a large police presence around the high court.” publishes all comments posted on articles provided that they adhere to our Comments Policy.
