'Is it time to ban old SA flag?' asks Mandela Foundation
6 November 2017
Cape Town - The Nelson Mandela Foundation has asked whether it is time to ban the old South African flag after the furore it created around the Black Monday marches on October 30.
"Is it time to criminalise displays of the old flag?" asked the foundation set up in the late former President Nelson Mandela's name, on Sunday.
"Is there a connection between the hubris of the Black Monday protests and the deep well of rage which underlies individual cases of murder on white-owned farms?
"How do we foster a collective revulsion at the murder of any South African, regardless of categorisation? Can we turn our country from one defined by violence into one inspired by Madiba's dream of freedom?"
