What did you make of Floyd Shivambu's 'scuffle' with Netwerk 24 journalist Adrian de Kock on Tuesday?
Political journalist Qaanitah Hunter has shared her thoughts on the incident, saying it is worth noting how differently politicians behave when they are 'unscripted'.
The Economic Freedom Fighters (EFF) Deputy President was caught on camera harassing de Kock outside Parliament, demanding that he delete a picture taken of him.
Hunter calls Shivambu's behaviour 'incredibly audacious', but says his subsequent statement was particularly interesting.
What I found more fascinating was the fact that his explanation was: 'This is the statement I have made, OK I made a mistake, it was a tussle or whatever it was and I am not commenting further on it.'— Qaanitah Hunter, Political Journalist
Hunter says it's the type of violence that cannot simply be ignored.
You get a hint of what people really are in these types of incidents.— Qaanitah Hunter, Political Journalist
Hunter also gave her opinion on the recent tweet by Western Cape Premier Helen Zille, saying it was absolutely astounding for Zille to put the blame on the families of the victims of the Life Esidimeni tragedy.
It is good that the families of the Life Esidimeni victims have received a measure of justice and compensation. I would like an answer to this question: What did they do, before these tragic deaths, to raise the alarm about their loved ones starving + living in profound neglect?— Helen Zille (@helenzille) March 20, 2018
