"Chris Hani Must Be Turning In His Grave" ANC Veteran Fumes As This Happens

African National Congress veteran and former Umkhonto Wesizwe Military Veterans Association, Carl Niehaus is fuming after a Democratic Alliance mayor in Ekurhuleni City, Tania Campbell attended the memorial service of Chris Hani.

Campbell could be seen carrying a wreath of flowers leading, while ANC comrade and minister of mineral resources and energy, Gwede Mantashe was behind her also carrying flowers to lay on Chris Hani's grave.

Carl Niehaus said this is unheard of that an opposition mayor will be leading the processions of the commemoration of an anti apartheid revolutionary who was murdered by the same racists.

Niehaus said this is a disgrace and that one cannot stomach seeing the Democratic Alliance mayor doing this after the assassination of Chris Hani.

"This is a disgrace. I honestly cannot stomach a commemoration for comrade Chris Hani led by the reactionary Mayor of the racist Democratic Alliance.

Eish, just look at the expression on her face. Aikona, this is sacrilege! Comrade Chris Hani must be turning in his grave," he said.

Critics however told Carl Niehaus that these are changing times and he needs to adapt or else he will keep on having chest pains.

He responded by saying that he will never forgive or forget what happened to Chris Hani and he won't adapt into this reconciliation mantra.

Former president Jacob Zuma's daughter, Duduzile Zuma-Sambudla also concurred with Carl Niehaus and said she agrees with those who refuse to reconcile with former colonizes.

Duduzile Zuma argues that Chris Hani was right when he stated that people like De Klerk and his cabal were never going to change.

"I disagree with a lot of people who think De Klerk and others have changed because De Klerk and others have done nothing about removing the forces that they created.

We can’t kiss our oppressors, they are murderers," said Duduzile Zuma-Sambudla.
