Cope leader says protestor’s killing will test democracy

Congress of the people leader Mosiuoa Lekota says the death of party member Andries Tatane in a fight with police during a protest march in Ficksburg in the Free State will test democracy in South Africa.

The 33-year-old unarmed Tatane was yesterday beaten to death, allegedly by police members, during a service delivery protest.

Lekota says if the government tries to restrain demonstrations in the way it did in Ficksburg, the country can kiss democracy goodbye.

According to the Cope leader, the incident did not seem to be a mistake, but rather a pre-considered act.
