[Breaking news] Small crowd rampages at launch of 'Gangster State'
A small group of people have disrupted the launch of Pieter-Louis Myburgh's book, Gangster State: Unravelling Ace Magashule's Web of Capture at Exclusive Books in Sandton City on Tuesday evening.
The group chanted and ripped apart copies of the book, throwing pages around.
The Gangster State's thug army rather proves the point. I can't wait to read my unripped copy. Starting tonight. There must be so much worth hiding. Nothing like a violent response to get people to read the offending material. Just like @Jaqqs when the state got heavy. https://t.co/KbazuVhYIB— Bruce Whitfield (@brucebusiness) April 9, 2019
