CHRIS Hani District Municipality executive mayor Kholiswa Vimbayo said she will not give a detailed comment on the Save SA march organised around the country as she was not aware of the reasons for it while saying marchers were protected by law.

The march is set to start at noon today in Komani from the truck stop near the traffic circle towards the Westbourne residential area. Vimbayo was speaking during a media briefing about the programmes of the Chris Hani month. The Rep asked what her take was on the march set to take place today at noon. “The Constitution outlines the processes people must follow when they have grievances. However when they march they must do it in peace and they must pass their message to whomever they have a grievance against,” she said.

She said she hoped those who don’t want to be part of the march will not be disturbed. “We will not go deep on commenting on the march as we don’t have the details and the reasons for the march. We hope they followed all the laws and have been granted permission to march,” Vimbayo said. The Rep will report on the march as the events unfold and have a detailed story in The Rep on Friday.
