Phahlane also appealed to political parties to obey the law, and not say things that may lead to unrest and violence.
A lot of what he was saying is, there was an appeal, not only to the public to obey the law... but also to political leaders, saying please be mindful of what you say in public, be mindful of saying things that might insight violence.— Barry Bateman, EWN reporter
