Post-Cabinet Briefing: Implores communities to find peaceful ways to protest

Communications Minister Ayanda Dlodlo briefed the media at Parliament on the outcomes of Cabinet meeting on Thursday 11 May.

EWN reporter Linsay Dentlinger was there.

Dlodlo said Cabinet categorically does not condone the violence, intimidation, and looting taking place in places like Eldorado park and is imploring with people to find outer ways to express their frustrations.

She was referring to the protests started in Eldorado Park on Monday that quickly spread to other neighboring areas, Ennerdale, Klipspruit, Finetown and Orange Farm.

Dentlinger reports that Dlodlo also addressed the issue of Zuma returning to visit Vuwani.

This after he left without addressing the community during a recent visit.

That date she said would be determined following discussions with the king on when would be an appropriate time to return. But for now, the agreement is in place that Vuwani will be serviced by the Vhembe District Municipality.
