Opinion: Grab a cause and commit to it, urges Redi Tlhabi
Presenter Redi Tlhabi says she's saddened that some South Africans are questioning other people's activism, ahead of the various marches calling for President Zuma's resignation on Friday.
It is very sad that those are lows to which we have sunk... It isn't possible for every human being or organisation to take up every single cause.Redi Tlhabi, 702's Afternoon Drive presenter
I don't think anyone has a right to question what you choose as a cause.Redi Tlhabi, 702's Afternoon Drive presenter
The Afternoon Drive presenter says many public figures have consistently showed up to demonstrations against a range of social causes over the years.
I can tell you, that whether it was xenophobia, rape, racism, Andries Tatane or Marikana - a lot of us where there and a lot of the people who are behind tomorrow's march where there.Redi Tlhabi, 702's Afternoon Drive presenter
Instead, she has challenged those vocal critics to admit that they themselves have not partaken in these marches in the past.
If they'd been there, at the Marikana marches, then they'd be justified.Redi Tlhabi, 702's Afternoon Drive presenter
She says that people should be allowed to exercise their democratic right and prerogative without feeling chastised.
This is a democracy, people cannot be forced or guilted into marching.Redi Tlhabi, 702's Afternoon Drive presenter
Be a free South African, grab whatever cause that you feel is important and commit to it.Redi Tlhabi, 702's Afternoon Drive presenter
