The report was not even worth the paper it was written on... Collins Khosa was brutally murdered by SANDF soldiers.Themba Masango, Secretary-general - #NotInMyName
The soldiers that killed Collins Khosa must be thrown with the book of the law and we must make sure that justice prevails.Themba Masango, Secretary-general - #NotInMyName
We cannot continue to have black people marginalised or have institutionalised racism at the neck of black people, the world over.Themba Masango, Secretary-general - #NotInMyName
We cannot have the people who are meant to be protecting us - the police, the state - being the one's that are murdering us.Themba Masango, Secretary-general - #NotInMyName
