|Mazibuko: woman whom the teachers' union loves to hate|
MP Mazibuko's attorney will be pushing the case with higher legal authorities: 'On Friday 13 April this year, a Sadtu official, Honjiswa Mrwebi, a teacher and chairperson of the Hewu-branch of the union in the Whittlesea area outside Queenstown, 'purposefully and with intent tried to run Lindiwe Masibuko over with her vehicle. 'Lindiwe and I were walking in solidarity with learners from Mbekweni village to their school, Zweledinga High, which is more than 12km from their homes. 'It is disgraceful that actions of violence intended to cause bodily harm as well as utterances to do so in order to settle differences, are still occurring in our democratic dispensation. We cannot send out the message that it is OK to revert to violence when you are in disagreement with other people. By not allowing this case to be heard, the court may be setting a precedent that a blind eye will be turned to acts of violence against members of the DA during our campaigns and protest actions. "The DA will not back down. We will continue our protests without fear. It is our democratic right and we are protected under the Constitution to air our views.'"
