Later that year the authoritarianism of the AIDC was exposed and then, pehaps most shockingly, Lynn Moonsamy, the elected leader of the Crossmoor informal settlement in Durban, issued a statement alleging that she had ben forced out of her home by threats of violence and slander from the Centre for Civil Society. Numerous people in Durban have confirmed the validity of her statement and that people speaking up for her have been threatened in all kinds of ways.
Now the ZACF has taken on, directly, Trevor Ngwane's authoritarianism. ... read full story / add a comment
