Cyril Ramaphosa bashed for defending Phoenix killers.

Cyril Ramaphosa never fails to give a reason why he should be voted out. In a time where he should be sticking with his people, he chooses to defend killers.

After a long and hard call to convict the #PhoenixMassacre killers the President is still not convinced that innocent people were murdered for absolutely no reason at all. During the #SA unrest riots, members of the Phoenix community took the law to their hands by assassinating people who they thought were storming their area to loot, this resulted in many innocent people dead including a 3 year old child. The Minister of Police Bheki Cele as well as the Premier of KwaZulu-Natal Sihle Zikalala have tried to give attention to this gruesome matter but it seems like they end up taking the perpetrators’ side and instead of acting on the matter they call for unity.

Some community members at Phoenix are calling for the release of those who were arrested and in an interview with SABC, Cyril commended the Phoenix community for defending their area and the democracy of the country. But how when innocent lives were lost? What more evidence do they need when everything was recorded on video?
