Hani pulled three ways
Lindiwe Hani touches her father's grave during the 15 year commemoration of the assassination of Chris Hani in Boksburg. Rather than follow the program and talk about the man who was assassinated 15 years ago. The ANC's Tokyo Sexwale, SACP's Blade Nzimande and Cosatu's Zwelenzima Vavi each took the spirit of the man and bent it in their own way to further their own political agenda during their speeches. I wonder how the family felt listening to these three take digs at each other, even though they blindly call themselves "allies". I know that I was unimpressed by their rhetoric, in fact I feel they simply displayed the cracks in this so called "alliance" as well as a blatant disrespect towards the Hani's and Martin Thembisile Hani himself.Tokyo Sexwale gestures AMANDLA! during the Commemoration of Chris Hani's assassination at the South Park cemetery in Boksburg.
