Opinion: What happened to rights ANC cadres fought for?

Umkhonto Wesizwe Military Veterans Association (MKMVA) in KwaZulu-Natal say they will deploy more than 600 members to Luthuli House to defend the African National Congress (ANC) and President Jacob Zuma from those who are marching to call him to step down on Friday.

South African Broadcasting Corporation (SABC) radio station, Radio 2002, quotes Ethekwini Mayor Zandile saying any protests against Zuma amounts to treason and security agencies will arrest protesters in Durban.

Eusebius McKaiser questions what has happened to the constitutional right to protest.

What happened to the rights that the very same ANC cadres fought for- the right to protest, to express your viewpoint publicly, peacefully, and the best men, women or gender non-conforming person can win depending on how bystanders evaluate what is it they can say in this court of public opinion.
