'The country is for all intents and purposes facing a gender civil war'

The African National Congress (ANC) has condemned the assault of an elderly woman in the fracas between pro and anti Zuma protesters outside Luthuli House on Monday describing the action as callous and dehumanizing.

The ANC’s Thabang Setona was caught on camera, kicking a woman during clashes between the Black First Land First and so-called "Defenders of Luthuli House".

Breakfast host Bongani Bingwa says the incident points to a moral crisis that is faced by the party.

The country is for all intents and purposes facing a gender civil war, says Bingwa.

When former deputy minister of higher education Mduduzi Manana was caught red handed assaulting a woman outside a bar last year, what was the reaction? Do you remember those who said they needed more context about the video?

Who can forget that cringe-worthy video he made addressing "fellow South Africans" about the incident. He was elected a member of the NEC at Nasrec, was he not?

So Thabang Setona is easy to suspend. He's a lowly branch secretary of the greater Johannesburg Region. Of course the party will note his actions with utter disgust as its statement contends. But in the context of how it has previously defended its leaders from Zuma to Manana, it should hardly be surprised. The fish always rots from the head!
