Vista Editorial Comment: South Africans are #gatvol

We have had enough of draconian lockdown regulations, enough of crime, enough of false perceptions, enough of fear, enough of intimidation and enough of platitudes.
Who is fooling who?
Lockdown is killing people (hunger and gender-based violence to name only two causes) and it has killed the economy. Unemployment is rife and businesses are closing down. People are suffering.
Matjhabeng has become known as the Hunger Hotspot of the Free State, we have the highest Covid-19 deaths and the most Covid-19 cases in the province, we are the gender-based violence and femicide capital of the province and crime is escalating out of control.
But Goldfielders are resilient. We always bounce back.
What is being called the biggest inner-city protest against farm murders and attacks took place in Welkom this week.Farmers, their wives, children and friends took to the roads in the region in a show of solidarity that the senseless violence and killings must end.
A massive cavalcade peacefully rode through Welkom.
In Stateway a group of Move One Millioners merged, incidentally, with the farmers at the clock tower, and then the famers moved on.
This show of unity was heartwarming and the acceptance and positivity shown by all was a lesson that when the going gets tough, the tough Matjhabengers stand together.
