Marches should be for all sides

2017-10-05 06:01

The Friday march against state capture, although well attended, must be broadened in future. It should have real meaning for unions and the public.

It is well known that such marches upset many politicians.

But we must ask why such protests have only started recently.

The State was captured long before our democracy.

The Guptas are not the only guilty ones. Many businesspeople have influenced politicians and state-owned entities. These corrupt people and companies should have been dealt with vigorously, before we got to the current situation. All political parties should have been part of the march, unless of course they are direct beneficiaries of state capture.

President Jacob Zuma should have set up a judicial commission of inquiry into state capture.
