Zuma’s Democracy View Outdated: Solidarity

 Trade union, Solidarity, criticises Zuma comments that in a democracy, majority prevails

Trade union, Solidarity, has described as ‘shocking and outdated’, the statement by President Jacob Zuma that in a democracy, the majority prevails.

Solidarity deputy chief executive, Dirk Hermann, argues that Zuma’s view creates two levels of citizens in South Africa, adding that, “One has more rights - that is to say the majority - and other has fewer rights, minorities.”

Zuma was responding to a question by the Democratic Alliance’s Lindiwe Mazibuko, who was asking whether smaller trade unions will be allowed to negotiate following events at the Marikana mine that revealed ‘serious fault lines in the country’.
