President Jacob Zuma made a very shocking and racist statement about Knysna.
In his own words the president said what is happening in Knysna is not enough to get presidential attention. “I cannot alter any budget or have extra resources wasted on people who obviously voted for the DA”
“Let the Western Cape and the DA deal with it on their own. We have serious issues happening around the country that need my attention”. Zuma told this to a journalist who asked him what is he planning to do to help people affected by the Knysna fire.
