As authorities try and control the outbreak of xenophobic violence, Durban is readying itself for a peace march on Thursday morning. Itll be led by KwaZulu-Natal Premier Senzo Mchunu and eThekwini Mayor James Nxumalo.
JOHANNESBURG - Popular tweeters Khaya Dlanga and Shaka Sisulu have used their huge following to mobilise people to join the Peace March in Durban.
Dlanga and Sisulu organised a bus to transported people from Sandton to Durban last night to join the March organised by the Kwa-Zulu Natal provincial government.
It all began with just a tweet from Dlanga calling for action to be taken to condemn the xenophobic attacks taking place in Kwa-Zulu Natal.
Sisulu responded to the tweet proposing that his friend has a bus that can be used for transportation.
They agreed on it and the “Peace Bus” was brought.
Both Dlanga and Sisulu say their instincts refuse to allow them to keep quiet about the brutality on fellow Africans.
The march will move from Curries Fountain to the city hall in Durban.
We are still well short of the 50 people we need to go to Durban on the peace bus. Please join us pic.twitter.com/S0Kv5O9D0s— Khaya Dlanga (@khayadlanga) April 15, 2015
It would be great if businesses in Durban would give their employees a couple of hours tomorrow to join the march.— Khaya Dlanga (@khayadlanga) April 15, 2015
