Durban - Cheering and celebrating after the singing of the national anthem could soon be a thing of the past if KwaZulu-Natal ANC chairperson Senzo Mchunu has his way.The matter is so serious in fact, it will form part of the discussion at the party's National General Council in Johannesburg next month.Mchunu was speaking at the Pietermaritzburg City Hall on Tuesday, where Deputy President Cyril Ramaphosa was about to address the KZN ANC Youth League. The event was opened with the singing of the national anthem.While introducing Ramaphosa, Mchunu said: "I was listening to the loud cheers after we sang the national anthem. Some of us wish a moment of silence could be observed after the national anthem because it needs to be respected."He used examples of how other nations responded to their national anthem after it was sung - some cheered loudly while others observed a moment's silence."We also need to think about what is the real meaning of the national anthem and if we should render a moment of silence. As we go to the National General Council, we will be discussing what we should do after the national anthem [is sung]," said Mchunu.
