Outrage after two men destroy Andrew Zondo street sign [watch]

A short clip of two white men destroying an Andrew Zondo street pole has been shared on Twitter by a user with the handle, @andile_ice earlier today.

In the clip, the men can be seen uprooting the sign before throwing it to the ground while a woman who appears to be taking the video laughs in the background.

The video got the attention of many who wondered whether these men – like the men who destroy street poles to take them to junkyards – will be punished for their actions.

Others however pointed out that the men in the clip were only against the street being named after Zondo, an Umkhonto we Sizwe (MK) operative who was found guilty of planting a bomb in a mall leaving two adults and three children dead in 1985.

In fact, in the 80s, many opposed the street being named after Zondo who had carried out the bombings after nine anti-apartheid activists were killed by South African security forces a few days before the Sanlam Mall bombing.

According to them, it would set a bad example.
