The DA`s apartheid wall in Kraaifontein

26 June 2002

The ANC Western Cape is outraged at the DA`s decision to build a wall in Kraaifontein to separate poor black communities from white communities.

Said ANC Provincial Secretary Mcebisi Skwatsha: "This is nothing but an apartheid Berlin wall. It is appalling, wrong and immoral!

"The fact that they want to introduce an electric fence shows just exactly what they think of poor black people. Tony Leon and the DA have finally exposed their rotten racist face with this decision.

"We will fight this abhorrent idea with all legal mechanisms to our disposal, as well as with mass action as we fought the apartheid system.

"We were willing to lay down our lives for a new country and constitution. We prevailed then as we shall prevail again over this issue.

"We are not going to let anyone turn back the clockS"
