A Lunatic and Confrontational Approach Will Not Help South Africa

The events unfolding in South Africa are somewhat unfortunate and I would like to add my voice to the people who are calling on Julius Malema and his EFF to stop contributing more chaos to an already chaotic political situation in that country.

I had just finished my supper last night when I took a sneak peek at my social networks news feeds and the first headline that stared at me from a South African news site was ''fist fights in parliament''. South African politics, even though they have really tried to push democracy forward, they have really been struggling with an undemocratic approach to administration by Jacob Zuma and his cronies. Underline the word cronies. And here is my suggestion, if JZ is interested in democracy at all then he should just answer the questions being tabled to him by Malema and EFF. What is so difficult about that? Unless there is something to hide.
