IT takes a brave person to face adversity while still displaying principles. Such a brave man is Eastern Cape ANC MPL Christian Martin.
I salute his principled decision not to apologise to the legislature for comparing the DA to peacocks. I concur with his views on the DA. The DA is a party for the elite, read white. They today refer to our fellow citizens as refugees in their own country. Such a statement is an infringement on the rights that many lost their lives for and is as close to a treasonable statement as possibly can be.
For me as a black survivor of the struggle the DA represents all that is unhealthy in SA. Their arrogance knows no boundaries. Only in the DA can a racist slur become a promotional tool such as Athol Trollip's rant against Afrikaners.
Their search for a credible black leader has unearthed the politically talentless Lindiwe Mazibuko whose parliamentary blunders can only be compared to the sinking of the Titanic.
MPL Martin must know that he spoke the truth. The DA is surely the peacocks of SA politics.
